SHAFAQNA (Shia News Association) — Human rights group B'Tselem has uploaded a video showing Israeli police officers brutally attacking a Palestinian child, providing more evidence of Israeli violence against Palestinian children.
A volunteer shot the video near the Ibrahimi Mosque in the city of al-Khalil (Hebron) in the south of the occupied West Bank on June 29 for the B'Tselem human rights organization and the group uploaded the video on YouTube on Monday.
The video shows one border policeman apprehending a nine-year-old boy, identified as Abd al-Rahman Burkan, and knocking him to the ground while the child shouts.
A second policeman is then seen approaching the child and kicking him.
B'Tselem said in a statement that the video has been sent to Israeli officials for investigation, adding, "We will file a complaint against the officers with the Police Investigations Department.”
However, previous investigations into similar incidents have gotten nowhere.
