The special military court Thursday convicted Lt. Col. Omri Burberg and his soldier, Staff Sgt. (res.) Leonardo Corea for unsuitable, threatening behavior towards a Palestinian.
The incident happened nearly two years ago when the soldier fired a rubber bullet at the feet of a bound Palestinian and his commander looked on as it happened.
Burberg, former commander of Battalion 71 in the Armed Coprs, was convicted for attempted threats and Corea for illegally using a weapon. Both were convicted for inappropriate behavior.
