JERUSALEM  — Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday condemned videos filmed by Israeli soldiers that humiliate Palestinians .

The most recent YouTube video appears to show an Israeli soldier dancing around a blindfolded Palestinian Muslim woman.

Netanyahu's office said in a statement that the videos cause "unacceptable harm to human dignity" of the Palestinians, embarrass the Israeli military and "cause serious international damage."

A woman who said she was the one in the latest video, which dates to 2007, recounted the event on Channel 10 on Wednesday. The report said that she was a member of Islamic Jihad and was released last year after a two years in prison.

The Israeli in the video has refused to comment. It has not been possible to verify the video's authenticity.
