Junior IDF commander of Hebron shooter was concerned about explosives vest

An IDF platoon commander present at the scene in Hebron last week when an IDF soldier shot an already immobilized Palestinian terrorist was concerned that the wounded man may have been wearing an explosives vest, it emerged Tuesday in an appeal hearing seeking to return the soldier to custody.

The commander’s testimony could potentially substantiate the soldier’s claims that he shot the prone terrorist because he feared that he may be wearing such a vest.
