“In a statement on Monday the IDF said the soldier had “asked a Palestinian who approached” a military post to “step away.”

“In response, the Palestinian began recording and cursing the soldier. A verbal confrontation followed, which soon became a physical confrontation, during which the soldier hit the Palestinian,” the IDF statement said.”

In a shocking turn of events, the IDF account was fiction and Wright was able to post the video receipts. I would definitely be afraid of an occupation force that felt this comfortable lying about things they know can be refuted by journalists’ video recordings.
