Jerusalem24 – Yesterday, Sunday, Israeli watchdog organization B’Tselem published a video clip showing a settler firing a military weapon during clashes in the southern Hebron Hills area last month.
The Israeli channel, Reshet Kan, quoted B’Tselem as saying that the settler arrived in a military vehicle with the soldiers, and that no Palestinian casualties were reported as a result of the settler’s shooting.
An Israeli army spokesman said: “Confrontations took place between settlers and Palestinians in the area, during which stones were thrown and fireworks were fired, while a soldier took a settler into the military jeep to drive them to the area. The settler took the weapon of the soldier and fired in the air without injuries.”
