A 12-year old Palestinian boy whose death in an Israeli-Palestinian gun battle shocked the world was killed by Israeli soldiers, a senior army commander confirmed today. The death of the boy, Mohammed Jamal Aldura, was captured by French television. The images of his terrifying last moments have come to symbolize the chaotic nature of the violent confrontations of the past few days. The death toll is at more than 50 now, almost all of them Palestinians.

Me and my wife both saw this on TV the other day.

Needless to say, it was very graphic and shocking. The poor boy was hiding behind his father who himself was behind only a small stone and trying to wave that he was unarmed and not a threat. He did this continuously for 15-20 seconds, and then all of a suddenly, there was a burst of gunfire, with 10-20 bullets hitting him, the boy, and all around them. The boy was dead, and the man was injured critically.

This to me, did not look like a random act of chaotic violence, but more of an act of murder.

This distressed my wife so much she started crying, the images were so shocking.

Thanks to Sudama for the link... I hadn't seen the story in the "press" which seems not to want to print the "other" side of the story.

Disturbing. I don't know what is worse, that these people are trying to make a buck off this, or the fact that you can watch the Real unedited version here. (Warning, 50megs)
