The movie is set in World-War II where some commandos are sent to North Africa to assassinate a high-ranking person.

In one of the scenes, it's night, and a black scorpion is walking towards a wounded soldier. Another soldier wants to kill the scorpion, but the commander won't let him. At last scorpion stings the wounded soldier and kills him.

The commander says, "He was a burden for us".

Which movie is this?

Update: I vaguely remember that at the last of the movie, commandos open a door to shoot a general, but some soldiers are ready and as soon as the door gets opened, they shoot back the commandos. I think commandos think that the voice of the general is coming from behind the door, but it turns out that the voice is coming from radio.

Any more informations that might help identify it? When did you watch it/what time was it likely from? From what country was it likely? Were that German or British soldiers? –  Napoleon Wilson Sep 6 '13 at 11:14
    
Nothing more comes to my mind. I saw this movie like 10 years ago. I'm sorry. –  Saeed Neamati Sep 6 '13 at 19:26

Is it possibly Bitter Victory?

Can you elaborate your answer, why you think it is a match? –  Ankit Sharma Nov 18 '13 at 5:01
    
I was searching around online for WWII films set in North Africa and found several mentions of a scene involving a scorpion. I've not seen the film; just trying to be helpful. –  bananaman42 Nov 19 '13 at 15:58

I got that, but it is good to elaborate your answer as why you think it is a match. By doing this you will also get more appreciation for your answer, –  Ankit Sharma Nov 20 '13 at 6:13

It might be Desert Commandos. There is a reference to an incident concerning a scorpion in this review:

Captain Scholler (Ken Clark) leads the group and ruthlessly allows his injured subordinates to perish rather than slow the group’s progress (he idly watches as one man, shot in the leg but otherwise fine, gets fatally bitten by a scorpion).

From the page popmatters.com/feature/…: "Captain Scholler (Ken Clark) leads the group and ruthlessly allows his injured subordinates to perish rather than slow the group’s progress (he idly watches as one man, shot in the leg but otherwise fine, gets fatally bitten by a scorpion)." –  Anton Dec 3 '13 at 3:35
    
I've added the excerpt to your answer. (You can do this yourself by simply editing your post.) –  coleopterist Dec 3 '13 at 5:21
