JERUSALEM – The Israeli military said on Monday that it was investigating a video that appears to show an Israeli army sniper shooting a motionless Palestinian across the border in Gaza, to whoops of excitement from the onlooker.
Israeli television channels broadcast the clip at the start of their primetime evening news bulletins — with one host describing it as “disturbing” — after it circulated widely on social networks.
Its release comes after more than a week of daily protests by Palestinians at the Gaza-Israel border.
