Israeli commander killed while pretending to be Palestinian assailant | The Electronic Intifada

The army commander slain on Tuesday is not the first Israeli to be inadvertently killed during an alleged stabbing scenario.An Israeli reportedly suffering from emotional distress apparently sought to commit “suicide by soldier” when he was killed by a civilian security guard who presumably mistook him for a Palestinian at a Jerusalem-area checkpoint earlier this year.Another Israeli was killed in February last year after he was shot when soldiers and an armed civilian opened fire on a Palestinian who allegedly attempted to stab the man.An Israeli man was shot dead in December 2015 when Israeli forces fired on two Palestinians in the Old City of Jerusalem in late December. Another Israeli was fatally stabbed during the incident.
