(Worthy News) - The Israeli military said it was investigating a video that surfaced on Monday that appears to show IDF sharpshooters cheering as one of them shoots and fells a Palestinian who approached the Gaza security fence.
The video, which was widely shared on the WhatsApp messaging application, was apparently filmed through a scope or binoculars.
The soldiers can be heard discussing the shot ahead of time, as the sniper trains his rifle on the suspect, who is seen standing next to another Palestinian crouching in front of a roll of barbed wire several meters away from the security fence. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
