PFLP urges family of filmed detainee to sue Israeli army

Oct. 6, 2010 12:34 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 6, 2010 9:57 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine urged the family of the woman filmed blindfolded and handcuffed by an Israeli soldier as his colleague danced around her to file suit against the Israeli army.

The PFLP said in a statement Wednesday that a legal suit was necessary to prosecute the Israeli soldiers involved in the filming and to "expose these disgraceful practices."

The video surfaced on YouTube on Monday, after controversy following the release of pictures by a former Israeli soldier on a social networking site showing her near blindfolded Palestinians. The photos prompted Israeli rights groups to release similar pictures showing soldiers humiliating Palestinians.

The party called on the media to shed more light on Israeli soldiers' conduct.
