Israeli soldiers shot Palestinian boy ‘deliberately’, claims B’Tselem

MEMO | June 25, 2016

The Israeli human rights group B’Tselem has said that the shooting of a 15-year-old Palestinian boy on Tuesday night was “deliberate, entirely unjustified and a direct result of military policy.” The group’s report gave details of the incident during which Mahmoud Badran was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers. The boy from Beit Ur a-Tahta was with four of his friends at the time; they were wounded in the unprovoked attack.

“The shots were fired at a car with seven passengers inside, who were making their way back from a night out at a water park,” reported B’Tselem. “The military initially announced the soldiers had ‘targeted terrorists who were throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli cars on Road 443’, but later changed its version and stated the boy had been ‘mistakenly’ killed.” The organisation’s field-researcher indicated that “the soldiers used heavy fire against the moving car without any justification.”

According to B’Tselem, said: “At around 1:30am, seven residents… were making their way home after a night out at the Lin Land Waterpark in the village of Beit Sira. When the car approached a narrow underpass used by Palestinian vehicles to get across Road 443, [Israeli] soldiers standing on the road, on top of the underpass, opened massive fire at the car from a distance of 40 to 50 metres.”

Most of the passengers in the car were hit by the shots, including the driver, who lost control and crashed into a wall. “Five of the seven passengers were hit in the shooting: Mahmoud Badran was killed instantly, four passengers were injured.”

  1. They do these things partly for fun and partly because killing goyim is regarded as an action pleasing to God. And they have no incentive not to kill Palestinians at random like this, because the “Israeli” courts never impose any penalty of any kind. upon any Jew who kills a non-Jew. It all helps keep the “demographic problem” from getting out of hand.

    • Random arbitrary executions.

      Forcing people to live or die at your mercy is basic subjugation.

  2. What does “The World’s Policeman” have to say in response to this attack?………..The silence is deafening.
