On 10 March 2015, soldiers entered the home of ‘Imad and Fayzeh Abu Shamsiyeh, B'Tselem camera volunteers in Hebron. The soldiers woke the children, photographed them, viewed footage the Shamsiyehs filmed of life in Hebron and of Israeli security forces, and confiscated a hard disk and a memory card with images. Photographing and recording, even of soldiers, are permitted in the West Bank. B'Tselem urges the military to immediately return the confiscated property with its contents intact, and refrain from harassing B’Tselem volunteers or hampering the work of photographers.
