Israeli Soldiers Caught on Camera Assaulting and Throwing Stones at Journalists

Israeli Soldiers Caught on Camera Assaulting and Throwing Stones at Journalists

Israeli soldiers have been caught on camera assaulting two photojournalists in an incident that has attracted widespread criticism both within Israel and abroad.

The video showed a number of Israeli soldiers hitting and pushing around two photojournalists. One of the soldiers is captured on camera throwing a stone at one of the journalists before pushing him to the ground.

After the two journalists are forcibly pushed away, one soldier is seen throwing another stone as they walked away.

The two journalists were clearly marked as members of the press, yet this did not prevent the soldiers from assaulting them while shouting “Get out of here!”

In response to the video, the IDF spokesman said that the behavior was “reprehensible” and that the soldiers would be investigated for their actions.

“The IDF guidelines allow for free press coverage in the territory under control of the Central Command in general, and specifically during demonstrations. The matter will be investigated,” said the IDF’s spokesperson to Haaretz.

The two photographers had been documenting a protest of some 70 Palestinians that had gathered in a closed military zone to demonstrate.
