Watch: Security camera footage of incident

 

The Palestinian, Muhammad Da'ar Sa'ad from the village of Al-Mazra'a Al-Sharqiya, was held in Israeli detention for about a month. After the footage was exposed, due to the efforts of the Palestinian's attorney, the Military Prosecution withdrew its claim that he had thrown stones. The youngster was subsequently released.

 

Based on the footage, B'Tselem claimed the operators of the camera purposely turned it away from the incident. The human rights group further claimed that the footage was not transferred to the Palestinian's attorney.

 

The camera was positioned far from the scene of the incident, but the footage allegedly shows a soldier apprehending Sa'ad, knocking him to the ground and beating him. Shortly thereafter two other soldiers join in and hit the Palestinian.

 

B'Tselem says the filming was disrupted while the soldiers were beating the Palestinian.
