Video angers Pales­tini­ans: The Is­raeli mil­i­tary has rep­ri­manded sol­diers who filmed and cheered a sniper shoot­ing a Pales­tinian man stand­ing near the bor­der fence in Gaza in De­cem­ber, but de­fended the shoot­ing it­self. The mil­i­tary said the man, who was stand­ing mo­tion­less and was ap­par­ently un­armed be­fore be­ing shot, had been in­cit­ing ri­ot­ing. Is­rael said he was shot in the leg and in­jured. The video went vi­ral upon its re­lease this week and was aired on Is­raeli tele­vi­sion, fur­ther in­cens­ing Pales­tini­ans al­ready out­raged by the killings of at least 31 Pales­tini­ans by Is­raeli forces over the past two weeks dur­ing bor­der demon­stra­tions. One of those killed was a pho­tog­ra­pher wear­ing a vest clearly marked “PRESS.”
