The individual who died brought this upon herself.
the sooner you can comprehend the fact that both sides are dead wrong in the tactics they are using to resolve a conflict the better your understanding of the situation overall will be.

The obvious point is that the IDF clearly does not adhere to any rules of engagement and could care less how many innocent Palestinians they injure, maim, and murder.
the Palestinians don't seem to care how many Israeli women and children are killed.

If I was forced to be in a situation where I had to take the life of a thirteen year old kid, I think I'd put 20 rounds into my own head.
God, this world is #ed up.
Maybe the commander flipped out. Maybe he realized the kid looked exactly like his own daughter. Maybe he's a scapegoat, or something behind the scenes is going on. Hard to say without testimony or being there.
