The International Emmy Award for Best Documentary was presented on Monday to "5 Broken Cameras," a film co-directed by Palestinian filmaker Emad Burnat and Israeli filmaker Guy Davidi.

Burnat accepted the award, proclaiming on Twitter, "@iemmys it’s great day & moment for Palestine! I made it, the first Palestinian to win an Emmy Award!"

The film, documenting the struggle of residents in Burnat's native West Bank village of Jenin against the separation fence, won the documentary director's award earlier in the year at the Sundance Film Festival.
