Video has emerged this morning of an Israeli soldier executing a wounded Palestinian man in the streets of Hebron.
The video has been revealed by Israeli human rights organisation, B’T Selem. You can read the original report here.
The man was one of two accused of stabbing an Israeli soldier.
An extended video shows the soldier being loaded into an ambulance while more than a dozen soldiers and officials look on.
B’T Selem reports: “Palestinians Ramzi al-Qasrawi and ‘Abd al-Fatah a-Sharif were shot after stabbing a soldier in Tel Rumeida, Hebron. The soldier sustained medium-level injuries. While al-Qasrawi died on the spot, a-Sharif was injured and fell to the ground.
“In video footage captured by Hebron resident ‘Emad abu-Shamsiyah, who sent it to B’Tselem, he is seen lying on the road injured, with none of the soldiers or medics present giving him first aid or paying him any attention at all.
“At a certain point, a soldier is seen aiming his weapon at a-Sharif and shooting him in the head from close range, killing him. Although this occurs in the plain view of other soldiers and officers, they do not seem to take any notice.”
