Israeli Channel Two poll: 68 per cent of Israelis disagree with public criticism of the Israeli murderer
Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that “executing the wounded Palestinian in Al-Khalil is an ethical act.”
Commenting on the incident during the weekly meeting of the Israeli occupation government, Netanyahu said: “The soldiers of the IDF, our children, maintain high ethical values while courageously fighting against bloodthirsty murderers under difficult operational conditions.”
He severely criticised the voices calling for an investigation into the incident. “Any challenge to the morality of the IDF is outrageous and unacceptable,” he said.
“We must all support the IDF Chief-of-Staff, the IDF and our soldiers, who safeguard our security,” he said, referring to the Israeli murder.
On Thursday, an Israeli occupation soldier shot and wounded the Palestinian Abdul-Fattah al-Sharif, 21. Then, one of the Israeli soldiers shot him in the head from a very close distance, while he was motionless.
A couple of hours later, the Israeli rights group B’Tselem published a video for the execution that went viral on the internet and sparked widespread criticism amongst calls to prosecute the murderer.
