In the clip, the official's name and position are spelled out at the top of the screen, and he is seen getting into a vehicle.
It is a criminal offense in Israel to expose Shin Bet employees.
A police spokesman told The Jerusalem Post
that the minor is also suspected of shouting threats at the official while filming him.
"He was detained, questioned, and then released. He has been invited for
further questioning at the Hebron police station," the spokesman added.
The Honenu legal assistance organization, which provides representation
to right-wing activists, said the youth denied the suspicions against
him during questioning.
Security personnel believe far-Right elements are systematically
harassing them as retribution for enforcing policies that confound the
Greater Israel ideology.
A small number of right-wing activists activists have attempted to
circumvent national legislation using global web communications tools
such as Youtube.
