Videos: savage beating by Israeli police in neighborhood where murdered teen was kidnapped

Two videos have emerged showing Israeli police brutally beating a Palestinian youth in the Shuafat neighborhood of eastern occupied Jerusalem.

The disturbing videos appear to show the same incident from different angles.

The area has been rocked by protests since local teenager Muhammad Abu Khudair was abducted and murdered early on Wednesday, in an apparent reprisal for the killing of three Israeli teenagers whose bodies were found in the occupied West Bank on Monday.

The footage at the top of this post was broadcast on the television channel Palestine Today. This video uploaded to YouTube appears to have been created by someone pointing a camera at a TV set tuned to Palestine Today.

The text on the TV screen states: “Exclusive to Palestine Today, video shows occupation soldiers and settlers savagely attack a Palestinian youth in Shuafat.”

The second video posted on Facebook by Quds News Network shows the same incident. It appears to have been shot with a mobile phone from an adjacent building.
