Israeli Officer's Insane Justification for Killing a 13-Year-Old Girl | Alternet

Israeli Officer's Insane Justification for Killing a 13-Year-Old Girl | Alternet: July 31, 2014 |
An Israeli army officer who repeatedly shot a 13-year-old Palestinian girl in Gaza dismissed a warning from another soldier that she was a child by saying he would have killed her even if she was three years old.

The officer, identified by the army only as Captain R, was charged this week with illegal use of his weapon, conduct unbecoming an officer and other relatively minor infractions after emptying all 10 bullets from his gun's magazine into Iman al-Hams when she walked into a "security area" on the edge of Rafah refugee camp last month.
