The footage shows the terrorists running toward a group of farmers. Then, one of them grabbed a woman and carried her until taking cover behind a building.  

 

Golani Brigade soldiers, who are currently deployed in the sector, and have had the opportunity to see the footage, said it was clear that the woman was forced to run with her assailant until he found cover.

 

"Why don't they give this video to the media? It should be shown to Goldstone," said one of the soldiers

 

The IDF spokesman's unit said in response that,  "The IDF uses the various means in its disposal to document its operational activities for purpose of debriefing, public diplomacy and possible criminal action.

 

"Nevertheless, for security reasons not all documented events are released for publication."
