Israelis Shooting Palestinian Convicted

A military court has convicted an Israeli commander and one of his soldiers of shooting a blindfolded Palestinian in the occupied West Bank.

The court on Thursday convicted Lieutenant Colonel Omri Burberg on charges of an attempted threat and unfitting behavior, the Associated Press reported.

The soldier, a sergeant, was also convicted on a charge of illegal use of a weapon.

Israeli forces arrested the Palestinian and shot him in the village of Naalin during a protest against Israel’s separation wall in July 2008.

The commander and the soldier have not been sentenced yet, but the charges carry a maximum punishment of three years in prison.

However, most crimes committed by Israeli forces against Palestinians go unpunished.
