(NEWS) Anger At IDF's Firing Of Security Officer

"Tensions between the IDF and the residents of Judea and Samaria have taken a turn for the worse, with the firing of one town's security officer for having fired at Arab infiltrators.

The Commander of the IDF Binyamin Brigade, Brig.-Gen. Saar Tzur, has given orders to fire the security officer of the town of Talmon, in the Binyamin region. This, because of an incident that occurred a month ago in which the security officer fired at a group of Arabs who approached the town's perimeter fence carrying a saw.

The officer saw the approach as a threat and fired at the ground near the would-be infiltrators' legs - instead of, as standard procedure dictates, in the air. One of the Arabs was lightly injured by a pebble that was hit by the bullet fire. The officer immediately called a medical team, which arrived and saw that no treatment was needed."
