An Israeli military court on Sunday convicted two soldiers of using a Palestinian child as a human shield by forcing him to check for booby traps during the 2008-2009 Gaza war.

A transcript of the court decision made available by the army said the infantry sergeants were found guilty of “exceeding their authority to the point of endangering life,” and “conduct unbecoming,” for ordering a nine-year-old boy to search bags confiscated from arrested Palestinians.

The court acknowledged however that at the time of the incident, January 15, 2009, the troops had been under “difficult and dangerous combat conditions” and had gone several nights without sleep.

Sentencing is to be decided at a later date, the military said.

Israel’s Supreme Court has banned such actions, saying they amount to using a civilian as a human shield.
