An Israeli army captain was cleared of wrongdoing in the death of a Palestinian girl. The officer was brought up on charges after his unit shot dead a girl in the Gaza Strip last year, suspecting her of carrying a bomb, and two soldiers reported that the officer “confirmed the kill” by riddling the girl’s body with bullets. A court martial in Tel Aviv acquitted the captain of conduct unbecoming an officer Tuesday, finding that the testimony against him was tainted. Israeli media said the officer, a Druse, did not have good relations with his subordinates and that several wanted to see him discharged. He vowed to return to active service.
