    Default Israeli soldier posts disturbing photo of child in crosshairs of his rifle



    This disturbing image shows the back of the head of a child or young man as seen in the crosshairs of a rifle. The photo was posted on the personal Instagram account of Mor Ostrovski, a 20-year old Israeli soldier in a sniper unit.

    The context particularly the character of the buildings seen in the background of the image strongly suggests the child could be Palestinian.

    There are no other images to suggest that the photographer actually fired at the person in the image in this case. The image is simply tasteless and dehumanizing. It embodies the idea that Palestinian children are targets.

    You don't like Israel, we get it.

    ‘Constant target’ – Instagram reveals

    "Pictures of Israelis targeting Palestinians have also been posted on Instagram in recent weeks. A snapshot posted at the end of January shows the back of a young man's head in the crosshairs of a rifle. The picture, posted to IDF sniper Mor Ostrovski's account along with others, does not show whether or not the individual on the image was shot down."

    You mean a "soldier" targeting a child. Its still not known whether the child was shot or not.
