Israeli, Broken ARM Boy Scuffle

Published: November 4, 2015

Israeli, Broken ARM Boy Scuffle, A young boy, wide-eyed with fear, casts a terrified glance at an Israeli soldier’s assault rifle as he is pinned to the ground.

This startling footage shows the tension and fear that is an everyday reality for people caught up in the violence of the West Bank.

The video shows the boy – whose arm is in a sling – wrestling with the soldier during clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters earlier today.

The pictures show the boy – whose arm is in a sling – wrestling with the soldier during clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters earlier today.

The mask-wearing trooper was set upon by Palestinian protestors – including children and old women – desperate to free the frightened and injured boy.

At one point the soldier raises his fist as if to strike the woman standing before him.

His mask is torn away and his rifle falls to his side as he is set upon by the group.

A little girl sinks her teeth into his right hand, before he shoves her away as he holds onto the boy.

The outcome of this raw and upsetting incident is not known, but a fellow IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) soldier is seen coming to his comrade’s aid.

The pictures were taken following a march against Palestinian land confiscation to expand the nearby Jewish Hallamish settlement on August 28, 2015 in the West Bank.

Tensions in the region are high after Israel yesterday launched an air strike against a Hamas facility in response to a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army said.

No one was hurt in the night-time rocket attack on southern Israel, the army said in a statement.

There were no immediate reports of any casualties in the Palestinian enclave after warplanes struck what the Israeli military said was a weapons factory belonging to the ruling Hamas Islamist movement.

Salafi jihadist groups that support al Qaeda’s calls for a global holy war have claimed most of the sporadic rocket strikes on Israel from the Gaza Strip since the end of a 50-day war a year ago.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Thursday’s rocket, which exploded in an open area adjacent to the Gaza border, but Israel has said it holds Hamas accountable for any attacks from the enclave of 1.8 million Palestinians.

According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry website, 11 rockets from the Gaza Strip, excluding the one launched on Thursday, have struck Israel since the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that halted the Gaza war.
