Gili Cohen reports:[1]

Israel's Military Police have launched an investigation into the case of a Palestinian who was beaten while under arrest, after a security camera at a nearby settlement caught the beating on tape.

Soldiers arrested the Palestinian, Dar Sa'ad, for allegedly throwing stones at them during a violent demonstration in the village of Silwad on April 26.

A security camera at the settlement of Ofra shows that the soldiers then punched and kicked Sa'ad several times while he was lying on the ground. But it's not clear how long the beating went on because after a few seconds the camera was turned to face in another direction.

An officer familiar with the incident said that several Palestinians threw stones at soldiers from the Kfir Brigade and the Border Police during that incident. But that doesn't justify how Sa'ad was treated after being arrested, the officer continued: The beating never should have happened.

When Sa'ad was eventually taken to a police station, he denied throwing stones and told the police that the soldiers had beaten him after his arrest. But the police did nothing about his complaint. He was charged with throwing stones 10 days later.
