IDF soldier who fired on wounded terrorist ‘acted alone,’ investigation finds

A Kfir Brigade soldier who fired on a Palestinian knife attacker that had already been shot and wounded did so alone, and did not receive any orders to open fire from officers on the scene, an initial IDF investigation found on Friday.

The soldier is in Military Police custody after firing on the downed attacker in Hebron on Thursday. An investigation carried out by OC Central Command, Maj.-Gen. Roni Numa, on Friday morning found that the soldier arrived at the scene of a knife attack by two Palestinians after it had ended.
