Case closed against IDF Col. who shot dead Palestinian rock thrower

Regarding the decision to close the case, Military Advocate General Brig. Gen. Sharon Afek ruled that Shomer had properly executed the rules of engagement for apprehending a suspect by firing two warning shots and then aiming and firing twice for al-Casba’s legs.

Afek stated that Shomer missed by mistake due to firing while moving, as opposed to firing from a static standing position, and that despite this unintentional error, the procedure of firing at al-Casba’s legs had been correct.
