Press sources in the 1948 occupied lands reported that the Israeli military prosecutor Avihai Mandelblit decided Tuesday not to impose a harsh penalty on the Israeli border officer who deliberately shot a handcuffed Palestinian young man in Bil"in.

The Israeli prosecutor said that the indictment filed against officer Omri Boberg would be confined to "improper conduct" while Israeli military elements said that the decision was fair enough for the circumstances of the incident.

For his part, lawyer Dan Yakir, from the association for civil rights, said that despite the sharp criticism of the higher court against this decision, the military prosecutor did not backtrack on his decision to consider the criminal act against the Palestinian young man improper conduct.

In another context, the family of prisoner Ahmed Abu Al-Rub from Jenin appealed to human rights organizations to urgently intervene and pressure the IOA to release their son in order to provide him with proper medical treatment abroad.

The prisoner"s father stated that his son, who has spent seven years in Israeli jails, is suffering from a disease in his brain cells which led him to lose his ability to stand on his feet and his life is in real danger, pointing out that the prison administration did not provide him with proper medical treatment.
