Israeli forces unleash dogs on Palestinian minor

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, West Bank –Israeli occupation forces unleashed on Tuesday attack dogs on Palestinian minor while in custody near a settlement in West Bank.

One of the Israeli soldiers took the video for the child Hamza abu-Hashem after her was arrested by the Israeli forces near the illegal Israeli settlement of Carmei Tzur, south of Beit Umar in the occupied West Bank.

The former Israeli lawmaker Michael Ben Ari shared the video and tweeted: “The soldiers taught the little terrorist a lesson!”

He asked his followers to share the video so that “ever little terrorist who plans to harm our soldiers learns the price.” The video went viral on many social media platforms.

Just a little time, the Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem posted it, describing: two soldiers from the ‘IDF’ dog unit, filmed by another soldier after they had set dogs on a Palestinian boy.

This arrest was part of an official ‘IDF’ operation, presumably approved by the higher command.
B’Tselem documented and publicised this incident about two months ago.

B’Tselem wrote to the Military Advocate General demanding an end to dog attacks on Palestinian civilians. The only response, received more than 18 months ago, was that the letter was received and is under review.

The army had stated in the past, after similarly shocking footage of a dog unleashed on a demonstrator was published, that it would stop using dogs to disperse demonstrations.

B’Tselem once again calls on the military to stop the horrifying use of dogs for arresting unarmed Palestinian civilians. Setting dogs on civilians is an appalling act, both unlawful and immoral.
