Settlers assault a Palestinian videographer, Hebron, May 2016
16 May 2016
On 4 May 2016 Raed Abu a-Rmeileh, a former B’Tselem camera volunteer, tried to film settlers using a dog to harass Palestinian girls. One settler hit Abu a-Rmeileh on the head, knocking him down. Before fleeing, the settlers assaulted two Palestinians who were with Abu a-Rmeileh. Soldiers present there did nothing to stop the assault, apprehend the settlers, or help Abu a-Rmeileh, who was taken to hospital and kept overnight for a light head injury. He was then called in to the Kiryat Arba Police station, where he provided footage of the assault, filed a complaint, and identified photos of the assailants.
