    Sharon defends Israeli Army despite civilian deaths

    The Israeli military has acknowledged it has killed about 30 innocent Palestinians during operations in the West Bank this year.

    Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has defended the Army, describing it as "more moral than any other army I know".

    The Israeli Army has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks over several incidents including the killing of a Palestinian schoolgirl and allegations soldiers shot dead a disarmed and wounded militant.

    In response the military has released figures revealing that so far this year troops have killed 148 Palestinians in the West Bank.

    Of those killed, 29 were found to be innocent bystanders.

    Launching a defence of the military, Mr Sharon said soldiers were waging a difficult campaign to stop murderers and terrorists.
