HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier was caught on camera headbutting a Palestinian teenager on Wednesday, according to footage captured by a volunteer for Israeli organization B'Tselem.
The incident occurs at an Israeli army checkpoint in the West Bank city. Soldiers order a group of young Palestinians to present their ID cards, and one of the teenagers is shown arguing with the soldier.
An Israeli officer arrives at the scene and is seen, at 1:05 in the video, headbutting the teenager, identified by B'Tselem as 17-year-old Thaer Ghanam.
Ghanam can be seen bleeding from his face as the soldier continues to assault him. more
