Video: The killing of 16-year-old Samir Awad

March 4, 2014 1:50 P.M. (Updated: March 6, 2014 10:39 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Amnesty International on Monday released a video documenting the 2013 killing of a Palestinian teenager by Israeli forces in the Ramallah village of Budrus.

Samir Awad, 16, was shot three times in the back of the head, leg and shoulder as he fled Israeli soldiers in January 2013.

Amnesty said Samir's killing may amount to an extrajudicial execution, or willful killing, which is considered a war crime under international law.

The video was released to accompany a report published last week which documented the routine use "unnecessary, arbitrary and brutal force" by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank.
