Palestinian Seriously Wounded, Kept On The Ground As Soldiers Stepped on His Hands
Palestinian medical sources reported Sunday that a Palestinian youth was injured near the Israeli settlement of Etzion, between Bethlehem and Hebron in the occupied West Bank. The soldiers then stepped on his hands to pose for pictures as the youth continued to bleed.
The Israeli army claimed that the resident, identified as Salah Sghayyar, 18 years old, attempted to stab an Israeli soldier, but “fell on his knife during a scuffle with the soldier”. Yet, initial media reports indicated that the youth was shot, not stabbed, in the chest.
