Footage appears to show Israeli soldiers cheering shooting of Palestinian

The Israel Gaza Strip border

The soldiers then debate whether to take out the person wearing a pink shirt or a blue shirt right before the crack of a shot is heard and one of the figures crumples. Moments later, when one soldier says that he didn't see what happened, a colleague laughs as he says the protester who was shot "flew in the air". Also, the IDF said the soldier who filmed the shooting was not part of the sniper unit serving on the border and would face a disciplinary hearing.

The video came at a highly sensitive time for Israel's military, which has faced mounting criticism over its use of live fire along the Gaza Strip border, where 31 Palestinians have been killed since late March as mass protests have led to clashes.

Palestinian man Tamer Abu Daqqa, whose shooting by an Israeli sniper was captured on a leaked video, walks with crutches inside his home in Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip on April 11, 2018.

Mr. Mubarak, who has been outspoken against Israel's occupation in Palestine, said he will not be deterred.

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.

Meanwhile, the soldiers in the video were defended and praised by senori Israeli officials. The army estimated that around 20 000 people turned out to protest last Friday, a significantly lower number than the previous week.

The departure was broadcast by state television and trumpeted as yet another major military victory for Assad over his opponents. More than ever, Syria is in danger of becoming an arena for the settling of scores among world powers.

In the video, which appears to be filmed though a set of binoculars, the soldiers can be heard discussing the shot as the sniper takes aim.

The rallies are part of a six-week demonstration that will culminate on May 15, which will mark the 70th anniversary of Israel's establishment - an event Palestinians refer to as the "Nakba" or "Catastrophe". "If they don't, I would say it anyway", Mubarak later said in a Facebook post.

"Anyone who was ever on the battlefield knows that to sit in Tel Aviv or studios and judge soldiers according to their comments, when they are busy defending our borders, is not something serious", he told Israeli Army Radio. Another soldier can be heard saying, "Wow, somebody was hit in the head".

He also tweeted in Hebrew: "They guard our lives".

Bennett was the first minister to rise to the defense of soldier Elor Azaria who was found guilty a year ago of shooting an already neutralized Palestinian assailant in Hebron on March 24, 2016. Bennett has consistently called for Azaria to be pardoned for his actions.
