An Official Investigation Must be Conducted
Based on the extensive evidence that has become available, it appears that a soldier fired at Mustafa Tamimi from the back of an armored jeep while the jeep was driving away from Mustafa. Mustafa was hit in the face by a tear gas grenade, and died a few hours later. Mustafa was throwing rocks at the jeep, but it still would appear to be an act of malicious negligence. The IDF must establish if this was an act of sadistic reprisal or an accident, but the facts need to be made known. We will be in Nabi Saleh tomorrow to cover the funderal. Our condolences to the people of the village.
