Israeli military closes investigation into death of Palestinian stone-thrower
Israeli human rights group says decision sends message that soldiers will not be held accountable for Palestinian deaths
The Israeli military says it has closed its investigation into the death of a Palestinian stone-thrower who was killed by a teargas canister fired to his head from close range by a soldier.
The Israeli human rights group B'Tselem says the decision sends a message that soldiers will not be held accountable if they kill Palestinians.
Tamimi was hurling rocks at a jeep when the soldier fired the teargas canister from it. Activists produced video appearing to show that Tamimi was shot at point blank range in the eye. An Associated Press
photograph of the incident shows Tamimi crumpled on the ground near the jeep.
The military said late on Thursday that the soldier could not have seen Tamimi. B'Tselem says this does not explain why firing from a jeep with limited vision could be considered legal.
