It is understandable if you as a an IDF soldiers want to defend your contry, you might even do it with pride. However, it is your legel duty to make sure that it is YOUR contry you defend and that you adhere to the Geneva Convention. If you, as in this case, kill an unarmed sivilian while carrying out your illegal duties, you have commited a murder. And don't try with the excuse " I only followed orders".
