A new video clip has surfaced showing an Israeli soldier with a blindfolded Palestinian prisoner.
IDF Facebook poster denies wrongdoing
A picture is worth a thousand lives
The clip shown on Channel 10 Monday, was of an Israeli soldier dancing
next to a female Palestinian prisoner while other soldiers cheer in the
Israeli media reported on Monday that the IDF's internal investigations department had
already ordered a probe into the matter following the Channel 10 television report.
The new video is reminiscent of the Eden Abergil controversy last month,
in which a discharged IDF soldier posted an assortment of photos
on facebook showing her posing with bound and blindfolded Palestinian detainees. The
pictures became a national controversy.
A statement from the IDF spokesman at the time said, "This is shameless behavior by
the soldier," speaking of the pictures. "In light of the fact that she
was discharged last year, all of the details have been turned over to
commanders for further attention."
