The family of the Lebanon army soldier who shot and killed IDF soldier Shlomi Cohen said that their son deserves a medal for killing an Israeli.
Al-Arabiya is reporting that the soldier is claiming that Cohen, who was driving down the road near the border, was planning to breach the border.
The Lebanese government is saying that the soldier acted on his own.
Al Arabiya reported that the soldier has served in the Lebanese army for 10 year and is considered an excellent soldier.
Cohen’s family is demanding a stronger response in light of the new facts that have come to light, that the Lebanese soldier wasn’t “crazy” as originally claimed, and instead was a stable, career soldier.
