An Israeli soldier armed with a machine gun was recently caught on camera scuffling with several Palestinian women and girls, who intervened as the man tried to detain an injured 12 year-old boy for throwing stones.
The footage went viral, generating millions of views in just two days, and has since put a spotlight on two radically different — and seemingly irreconcilable — interpretations of the army's role in policing the occupied territories.
The clip begins with violent clashes between Palestinian protesters and heavily armed Israeli soldiers.
The confrontation is a near-weekly occurrence in Nabi Saleh, a village near Nablus in the West Bank that is known for its activism against the occupation. At around five minutes and 11 seconds into the video, a soldier can be seen attempting to aggressively detain a boy, identified as Mohammed Tamimi, who has his arm in a plaster cast. What happens next has been seen in very different ways.
