Video Shows Dead Palestinian Was Beaten by Soldiers, Rebutting Israeli Claims

HeadlineFeb 23, 2018

In the occupied West Bank city of Jericho, a Palestinian man died Thursday after he was arrested and severely beaten by Israeli soldiers. Israel’s military initially said they subdued 33-year-old Yasin al-Saradih after he attacked soldiers with a knife and attempted to steal a gun; the military later said they fired bullets to stop al-Saradih after he attacked soldiers with an iron bar. But surveillance video later emerged showing Israeli soldiers kicking and beating al-Saradih before dragging his limp body away. The newspaper Haaretz reports an autopsy showed no bullet wounds were found on his body, contradicting the military’s statement.
