The Israeli occupation army has decided to discharge a soldier from service because he ran afraid from a teen girl carrying a knife in the West Bank.

According to Israel Hayom newspaper, a video recording showed the soldier running away from 16-year-old Nuf Infi’aat as she was trying to stab him at the entrance of an illegal settlement of Mevo Dotan in the occupied West Bank.

Last week, Infi’aat suffered critical injuries after Israeli soldiers opened fire at her at a military checkpoint near Ya’bad town in Jenin. She died the next day in a hospital.

The video footage also showed Israeli soldiers standing around the young girl and verbally abusing her as she was lying wounded on the ground.
