Israeli Sniper Posts Photo of Child in Crosshairs

• ABC News
A photo posted online by an Israeli soldier showing a child in the crosshairs of a rifle scope has created a firestorm on the internet, drawing widespread criticism.

The photo was reportedly posted on Jan. 25 by Mor Ostrovski, 20, a member of an Israeli sniper unit. It shows crosshairs zeroed in on the back of the head of what appears to be a Palestinian boy in a village. The photo has since been taken down and Ostrovski's account has been deactivated.

Per the IDF: "The issue was brought to the attention of the soldier's commanding officers, will be examined and properly handled." 

Ass-kicking is about to commence.
