ALBAWABA - Pictures of an Israeli soldier donning a military helmet with a controversial slogan while manning a heavily-fortified gate in the occupied West Bank caused a stir on social media.
A barrage of rebuke came from social media users for the unnamed soldier, who sported the helmet with the motto: "born to kill."
The Times of Gaza said the slogan reflected the mentality that is "widely embraced by the Israeli occupation soldiers, which is proven by their actions."
The soldier is deployed at a military checkpoint in Qalqilya in the occupied West Bank, inspecting Palestinians arriving at the gate.

One post bitterly attacked the United States, claiming that Washington encouraged Israelis for undertaking such intimidating actions by giving Tel Aviv $5 billion in aid each year, so that its soldiers can boast of killing Palestinians.
