This video is said to show Israeli soldiers and a “security” man aiming guns at the head of an injured boy, Maysara, who fell down, apparently after he was shot in the right leg while running away from an Israeli settlement in an occupied village near Nablus. It says it was recorded May 15th. Rawan Yaghi translates:

The Arabic at the beinning says: “Video showing IDF soldiers attacking an injured boy, Maysara, who fell down after he was shot by settlers while running away from them in the village of Qaryoun near Nablus.”

Voices in the video say “soldiers and security are surrounding him.”

What “security” in the West Bank is authorized to aim a gun at a child’s head? Who is authorized to use live ammunition on children?
