Close-up video of Israeli soldiers dressed as Palestinians arresting demonstrators

Yesterday I wrote about this photo of an Israeli undercover agent disguised as a Palestinian woman civilian who was involved in the arrest of demonstrators at Qalandiya checkpoint during Sunday’s Nakba protests.

This video from ITN News shows, at approximately 35 seconds in, Israeli soldiers dressed as Palestinian civilians arresting protesters during the same protest.

This is not a new phenomenon and it happens all the time in the popular demonstrations in the occupied West Bank. Indeed, because it is such a widespread practice, it deserves wider exposure and condemnation.
