You think he didnt look and see that she was shot and dieing?
PS, have you had first aid training?
It doesnt matter if she's alive or not at the time, if she was mortally wounded theres bugger all you can do about it.
Why? Because the human body, while strong and amazing...is fragile

i am curious if a child that is in your family or related to u was shot
1. expect the child to be given lifesaving treatment and atempt to save his/her life.
2. put a few rounds in the childs head to ease the pain?

No, nowhere in the article did it say they went to check on her status. They went to finish her off.
And yes, I do have first aid training. What's your point? Do IDF soldiers have first aid training? Do they know what to do to treat a gunshot?
Nowhere in the article does it say she was mortally wounded. They shot her then moved forward to administer the killing blow. To pump some rounds into her fallen 13 year old body, lying in the dirt.
Maybe writhing, bleeding, crying, begging for her life, asking for her mother. Maybe just blinking wetly like a scared deer.
Again, I am astounded by the lack of basic human compassion some of you have.
And you know what, if you have none, you deserve none.

This is sick, they have a taped conversation between the Captain, a Watchtower and the Command Post, and the Captain in question (who not only killed a 13yr old girl) ordered his men to "Anything moving in the zone, even a three-year-old, needs to be killed"...
That is sick, and what makes it worse is that the Israeli Army has only filed minor charges against him!
The tape recording is of a three-way conversation between the army watchtower, the army post's operations room and the captain, who was a company commander.
The soldier in the watchtower radioed his colleagues after he saw Iman: "It's a little girl. She's running defensively eastward."
Operations room: "Are we talking about a girl under the age of 10?"
Watchtower: "A girl of about 10, she's behind the embankment, scared to death."
A few minutes later, Iman is shot in the leg from one of the army posts.
The watchtower: "I think that one of the positions took her out."
The company commander then moves in as Iman lies wounded and helpless.
Captain R: "I and another soldier ... are going in a little nearer, forward, to confirm the kill ... Receive a situation report. We fired and killed her ... I also confirmed the kill. Over."

I find it odd that a 13 year old muslim girl would mistakenly wander into a dead zone where there are no other people, let alone no male relative to escort her.
