On 18 June '11, an army force came to a petrol station at the entrance to the West Bank village of Beit 'Ummar, which lies north of Hebron and arrested a youth from the village who works at the station, for allegedly throwing stones. His cousin, Rami Abu Mariah, who was there, intervened and spoke to the force commander to try and stop the arrest. The commander, a First Lieutenant, pushed him back, loaded his weapon and directed it straight at Abu Mariah's face. Muhammad 'Awwad, a B'Tselem volunteer who lives in the village, documented the incident on video.
