Justice Ministry officials are investigating footage captured by Palestinians which shows a Border Police officer apparently shoving a disabled man off of his wheelchair near the West Bank town of Hebron.

A police spokesperson told The Jerusalem Post on Monday that officials in the ministry's police investigations unit are examining the footage.

The incident occurred shortly after Israeli security forces shot and wounded a 21-year-old Palestinian woman who tried to commit a stabbing attack on Sunday.

The girl was rushed to Sha'are Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where she is listed in stable condition.
