Clip shows Israeli soldiers using Palestinian teenager as human shield

Press TV

A video clip has emerged showing Israeli troops using a handcuffed Palestinian teenager as human shield during a protest in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

According to the video, posted on YouTube by the Defense for Children International-Palestine (DCI-Palestine), the helmeted Israeli soldiers remove the young Palestinian from an armored jeep.

The boy, with his hands cuffed and held above his head, is then forced to stand beside the Israeli soldiers, who later start firing on Palestinian protesters.

The incident occurred in Abu Dis neighborhood of East al-Quds on Friday.

DCI-Palestine says the Israeli soldiers frequently use Palestinian children as human shield.

“We’re outraged that Israeli soldiers continue to use Palestinian children as human shields with impunity,” said Ayed Abu Eqtaish of DCI-Palestine.

Abu Eqtaish also stated that the teen in this case “was deliberately exposed to danger after he had been taken into custody.”

“Israeli authorities must conduct a prompt, transparent and impartial investigation and hold the perpetrators accountable.”


Israeli TV Report to improve the occupation’s image

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli military censor has allowed the Israeli Channel 2 television crew to document Palestinian children’s arrest process in al-Khalil for allegedly throwing stones in an attempt to demonstrate the “Israeli positive image” during arrest processes.

The Israeli TV report tried to improve the Israeli soldier’s image during storming Palestinian houses in “kindly” way, giving the detainee’s family the opportunity to say goodbye to their children and to check on their condition after arrest.

However, the Israeli arrest process is carried out violently by the occupation soldiers, where they daily storm the Palestinian houses at night, searching and damaging their properties and attacking the detainee’s family members.

The TV report, aired on the Israeli second channel, filmed the Israeli soldiers breakings into Aroub refugee camp in al-Khalil to arrest Palestinian children under the pretext of throwing stones at settlers’ vehicles.
