Israeli sniperAn Israeli soldier faces a 45-day jail term for the killing of two Gaza women carrying a white flag, under a plea bargain with a military court, the army and local media said.

The sniper, identified by Israeli media as `staff sergeant S`, was charged with manslaughter in 2010 over the fatal shooting of 64-year-old Riyeh Abu Hajaj and her daughter Majda Abu Hajaj, 37, during Israel`s 22-day war in the Gaza Strip that started in late December 2008.

But the Israeli military said the charge had on Sunday been reduced from manslaughter to using a weapon illegally, reports The Jerusalem Post.
