Israel vows disciplinary action over Gaza sniper video

The syndicate identified one of them as working for Hamas television.

The protests are expected to continue until mid-May, when US President Donald Trump plans to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that has deeply angered the Palestinians.

The PA had argued at the time that its decisions were caused by Hamas collecting government revenues in Gaza without sending them back to the Ramallah-based authority, whereas Hamas has accused the PA of deliberately applying further economic pressure on the impoverished coastal territory, which has been under an Israeli-imposed blockade for almost 11 years.

Senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi said the video showed what Palestinians have long alleged regarding the actions of Israeli occupation forces on the Gaza border, "but nobody has been listening".

Israel says it has only opened fire when necessary to stop damage to the border fence, infiltrations and attempted attacks.

Jamal Zahalka of the Joint List, a political alliance of four Arab-dominated parties in Israel, said the video "indicates to the rule".

The Islamic militant group Hamas that rules Gaza is now leading a campaign of mass protests at the border and 26 Palestinians have been killed since it began two weeks ago.

In a statement summarising a preliminary investigation, the military spokesman said the incident took place took place on December 22, amid Palestinian unrest at US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

Health officials in Gaza said they had no information about the man shot in the video and that his identity was unknown to them.

Muammar admitted the conservative culture of Gaza, which is run by Islamist movement Hamas, meant practising parkour was not always easy.

It said the troops' behavior does not reflect the army's values and they will be dealt with "accordingly", without elaborating.

The 81-second clip surfaced on social media on April 9 and led Israeli TV news, with one host calling it "disturbing".
