IDF under fire


A video of an injured Palestinian man strapped to the bonnet of an Israeli military jeep and driven past multiple ambulances during a raid of the West Bank city of Jenin drew international criticism yesterday. The IDF concedes it was a “violation of orders and standard operating procedures” that does not “conform to the values of the IDF”. They claim Mujahed Azmi was injured during a counter-terrorism operation and they were taking him to an ambulance, but his family disputes that. It came as at least 42 Palestinians were killed during Israeli strikes in Gaza City, including at the Al-Shati refugee camp. The IDF acknowledged the strikes but claims they targeted “2 Hamas military infrastructure sites”. The incidents have put more pressure on Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, who was also confronted by thousands more protestors at another ceasefire rally on Saturday.
