Loaded Footage: A Citizen View from an Arab Town

The short clip below, recorded by a B’Tselem volunteer, documents the unmistakable tension pervading the streets of the Middle East. The video shows a First Lieutenant who came to a petrol station at the entrance to the West Bank village of Beit ‘Ummar on June 18, 2011. The military commander arrested a young male who worked at the station for allegedly throwing stones. When the cousin of the arrested youth tried to intervene, the officer pushed him back and held a gun to his face.
