Posted November 08, 2019 09:16:24 In October 2017, a Palestinian gunman shot and injured an Israeli soldier, who was returning from a security detail in the occupied West Bank.
The soldier, Gilad Shalit, was taken to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where he died shortly after his arrival.
Six months later, Israeli police launched a full-scale investigation into the incident.
The investigation focused on whether or not Shalit was acting under orders from the Israeli military.
The following year, a court ruled that Shalit had committed an “act of violence” and ordered the army to make him available for questioning.
In a bid to make sure that the soldier’s death did not happen again, the Israeli government launched a public inquiry into the case.
The inquiry’s conclusions were released in November 2020.
The details surrounding the case and the investigation were largely revealed after Shalit’s death.
On January 1, 2021, Israeli forces raided the home of one of the suspects in the case, claiming that he had provided material support to the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
The Israeli army then announced that Shalits death was linked to the raid.
The case has since garnered widespread international attention.
At the time of his death, Shalit appeared to have been on the run from the authorities and was believed to have lived in Jordan.
Since the Israeli army began its investigation, more than 10,000 Palestinians have been arrested and over 1,000 have been convicted of charges related to the shooting.
What happened to the soldier who killed Shalit?
What was the verdict?
Why was Shalit sentenced to life in prison?
The investigation into Shalit began shortly after he was shot.
It was not immediately clear whether he had been involved in a previous incident.
According to the court’s report, Shalits initial encounter with the soldiers who arrested him occurred while he was walking to the military base on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
At that point, he and two others were approached by the soldiers, who said that they had been asked to arrest him for a terrorist offense.
According a summary of the investigation, the soldiers asked Shalit if he was a member of a terrorist organization and whether he knew who he was, and he replied that he did not.
The soldiers then told Shalit to open fire and asked him to get on top of the hill.
According the report, as he tried to climb, the group of soldiers shot him several times.
At least one of his bullets struck the hillside, and one bullet pierced the soldier, killing him.
A subsequent investigation by the Israeli Shin Bet security service found that the Israeli soldiers who killed the soldier were not carrying weapons.
What did the investigation uncover?
Israeli investigators concluded that the soldiers did not have the authority to order Shalit not to open fires, and that Shalitz was acting “under orders.”
The soldiers also claimed that they shot Shalit because he fired a warning shot, which they did not see.
However, one of them told investigators that Shalith was acting as a lookout for an Israeli army jeep that had approached the scene of the shooting in a car.
The army also alleged that Shaliths actions on the hill were not part of a warning and that he acted without warning.
The officers also alleged in the report that ShalIT did not know the location of the jeep and that the officers had mistaken him for someone else.
They said that he shot and wounded the soldier because he feared for his life.
What was Israel’s response to the report?
On November 10, 2021 the Israeli Supreme Court found that all of the Israeli charges against Shalit could not be proven.
The court also found that Israeli soldiers were not authorized to shoot someone without having reason to believe that the shooting would be fatal.
It found that Shaliz had acted in a “dangerous manner” when he opened fire.
What does the Israeli legal system offer?
The Israeli criminal code is very strict.
The first element of a charge is that the act was done “with the intention of causing death or serious injury.”
If the act resulted in death, it is classified as a murder charge.
If the attack resulted in serious injury, it’s classified as manslaughter.
If someone is killed by the use of a gun, the victim will receive compensation from the owner of the gun.
According this law, anyone who uses a gun without a permit is a criminal and is liable to a prison sentence of up to 15 years.
The third element of the charge is “that he committed the act for the purpose of causing serious bodily injury.”
According to this law: The use of force must be “for the purpose” of causing the death or grievous bodily injury of another person.
If it was the intention to kill, the act is classified with the “intent” part of the crime.
If an intention is not proven, the offense is considered “aggravated manslaughter.”
