Israeli occupation has admitted that the excuse used to ‘justify’ the killing of Abdullah Tawalba(19) and seriously wounded Omar Hanana(15) on Ferbuary 4th was baseless.
Israeli occupation soldiers who opened fire on the two boys riding a motorcycle at the checkpoint to al-Jamalah village claimed that the boys had ‘thrown’ or ‘planted’ what they claimed was ‘explosives’; internal occupation investigation found no evidence for this.
It doesn’t take a huge leap to guess that the occupation troops killed boys after hearing the sound of motorcycle – which, if one would be charitable – might be mistaken for sound of a minor explosion, if the exhaust pipe has problems.
That leap and guess might be too charitable – Israeli occupation soldiers’ easy trigger-fingers are well known, as the consequences are guaranteed to be from minor to non-existent to them.
It’s unlikely that Abdullah Tawalba’s family will either receive any justice in Israel’s occupation courts.
