Border Police suspended a policewoman filmed last week hitting two Palestinians, a spokesman said Sunday. The policewoman was filmed at an IDF checkpoint along the West Bank security barrier by the Palestinian organization Palestine Monitor, which sent the footage to reporters. The brief film shows three Palestinians on a donkey cart approach the IDF checkpoint. After an inaudible verbal exchange, the policewoman is seen hitting two of the Palestinians. Neither appeared to have been injured. Border Police spokesman Moshe Fintzy said the policewoman had been suspended from operational duty and that the footage had been transferred to the police's internal investigations unit.
