A human rights organization in Judea and Samaria issued a complaint Friday against a Border Police officer who was filmed in a video dragging a young settler by his sideburns, Channel 10 News reported.

The video was filmed during the Thursday eviction of illegal outpost, Mizpe Avichai, also known as Hill 18 near Hebron, which caused violence between security forces and settlers.

A committee for police investigations will investigate the officer for his actions.

According to Channel 10 news, the IDF attempted to prevent the documenting of the eviction, clearing the area of media personnel.

Six settler youth were arrested during the eviction.
