Indeed. We've all heard numerous stories of this kind, and each and every time their excuse is always that they thought it was A: "mistaken for a terrorist" or B: "I didn't know the person was there/i was aiming at something else/my weapon went of by accident"... One moment we are told that the IDF is the most professional army in the world, full of competent and intelligent people, the next moment it's "unfortunate human errors" on a weekly basis . So which is it ? Let's face it. Though I obviously wasn't there so don't know what this soldier was indeed up to, the depressing thought is that it's yet another case of an innocent person, in a mean twist of fate, having the bad luck to come to the attention of a bored soldier with a sadistic streak.
