Givati company commander Capt. R. was cleared of all charges, including the killing of a Palestinian girl, at the southern command military court on Tuesday afternoon. Capt. R. was accused of shooting 13-year-old Iman al-Hams at point-blank range and "verifying the kill" last October. Soldiers manning the Girit outpost spotted Hams 100 meters away and, fearing she was a terrorist, opened fire and raised the alarm. Capt R. was indicted last November on two counts of illegal use of weapons, obstruction of justice, unbecoming behavior and the improper use of authority that endangered others.
