I remember that article in the paper clearly (the witness is referring to an article featuring Givati soldiers who photographed themselves with the bodies of Palestinian terrorists), and that there was much talk about it in our company. And there were guys who got excited about it and said "cool, I also got to get a photo with a body, I've got to mark an X on my weapon, I've got to kill a terrorist, I'm in Gaza and it doesn't make sense that I'm not killing terrorists." There was someone who would photograph bodies through the scope of his weapon. He was a sniper, and after he would kill someone, it was already daylight, and he could see the body clearly through his scope. He would place the camera near the scope and photograph the body through it. One [such case] was across from Kerem Atzmona, a terrorist who died and he photographed his body through the scope, and there was another case when we were at the Kissufim (a settlement in Gaza Strip) area, and they were at the Mor Bridge post, where there were many clashes with terrorists and he simply photographed them all. There was one clash when I was present and the terrorist was completely burnt, because he carried an explosive device that didn't go off. We fired a lot at him, he was probably on speed, because even when we fired at him he didn't stop shooting, it didn't affect him at all. He was a very large man, he had an explosive device on him, and he continued shouting and shooting while we were firing at him. I never saw anything like it in my life, it was crazy. His device wasn't detonated, but he was completely burnt and he continued shooting until we shot him in the head. We're talking about a distance as far as between you and me. The only thing separating us was a jeep, and there was even a soldier who was so close to him that he got injured by shrapnel in his foot or butt. We arrived as they were shooting at him, and we already saw him burning, and they do a kill verifying, and I see him falling down and burning, and he keeps burning, his body kept burning and became a sort of tree trunk with no legs and no hands, all he had was a distorted head because his brain spilled out, and a sort of vest, maybe a flak jacket.
And your friend photographed it? He was in the post? Yes, he photographed it from inside the post.
