Israeli Soldiers Photographed Beating Palestinian in Hebron

Photos show one soldier kicking him, and another pinning him down to the ground with his knee. Military says the man was resisting arrest, but that the incident is being investigated.

Israeli soldiers were photographed beating a Palestinian man on Tuesday in Hebron. The military said that the man was resisting arrest.
Photographs taken at the scene showed that at least five Israeli infantry soldiers, from the Nahal Brigade, were surrounding the Palestinian during his arrest.
One of the soldiers is seen kicking him, while another holding him by the throat. Another photo shows a soldier pinning the Palestinian to the ground with his knee. The Palestinian is seen barefoot in a street in Hebron.
Photos of the arrest were soon published on social media networks.
The Israeli military said the incident will be investigated.
The military said it was carrying out security checks in the city due to recent attacks in the area. "During a routine security check, the Palestinian who was documented [in the photos] refused to be frisked. The forces had arrested the suspect. The troops' conduct is being looked into and the incident is being investigated."
The Israeli army has bolstered its presence in Hebron following two attempted stabbings in the city on Monday.
On Wednesday, a 13-year-old Palestinian girl was shot and lightly wounded at a checkpoint near the West Bank settlement of Alfei Menashe, after refusing to stop when commanded by the guards.
On Tuesday, a Palestinian attempted to stab an Israeli soldier outside the Palestinian town of Bani Naim, east of Hebron, the military said. The suspected attacker was shot and killed without any casualties among the soldiers.

Video of the Week Israel votes to cut off power to Gaza.


Video: Allegations have come forth that Mahmoud Abbas (self proclaimed Palestinian "president") will - on top of asking israel to cut Gaza's power to one hour per day (just approved)now declare Gaza a rebel zone! This (if true) will mean the cutting of all aid to Gaza, the shut down of all bank accounts, stopping of all entry/exit and the international arrest warrants of Hamas officials... Calls for war have already been shouted from the rooftops with cuts to Gaza salaries by the PA, restrictions on diesel fuel (due to the PA refusing to pay), the electricity being cut down again and again (causing various problems for life in Gaza) but now it seems like the final nails are being ever so violently hammered into the coffin. If this rumour is true then conflict with Hamas is inevitable and "israel" will have the perfect excuse to massacre innocents in Gaza due to having a legal means to arrest Hamas members (who will not just hand themselves in obviously). Mahmoud Abbas is ready and willing to collectively punish the entire population of 2 million (mostly children) in the Gaza Strip in order to gain more power and to please his own oppressors. If the aid is stopped, the 80+ percent of Gazans reliant on international food aid will starve, 97% of the water in Gaza is also undrinkable, so with none coming in what's the alternative? The current conditions in Gaza would make any sane person cry and feel sick to the pit of their stomach and the so called president of Palestine is dancing around in his expensive suits licking the feet of his people's oppressors!!! Mahmoud Abbas has to go! This is disgusting! #SAVEGAZA
