Yesh Din uncovers footage of Israeli soldiers abusing Palestinians

Aug. 15, 2008 12:36 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 15, 2008 12:36 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli humanitarian organization Yesh Din released several short videos on Thursday that recorded Israeli border guards abusing and humiliating Palestinians from Jerusalem.

The videos were all recorded on cell phone cameras between 2007 and August 2008.

In one of the short films, an armed Israeli soldier beats a group of Palestinian detainees, while another video shows a soldier forcing a Palestinian to perform a military salutation before him.

According to Yesh Din, the videos were recovered from a cellular phone that they say belonged to an Israeli soldier. The group said that a passerby found the phone and decided to hand to Yesh Din after he saw the videos.

Yesh Din representatives went to military police and demanded that the videos be examined to determine their validity. If the videos are what they appear to be, said the group, than the soldiers who appear on the video should be held accountable for their actions.
