Group waving Israeli flags seen parading through Palestinian town with IDF guard

Footage from Huwara in the northern West Bank shows Israeli troops protecting a group of Israelis parading through the Palestinian town with Israeli flags.

The show of force comes after the son of a far-right MK and his family were hurt in a stone-throwing attack in the area last night.

According to Palestinian media reports, soldiers are firing stun grenades and tear gas at Palestinians in the area.

In recent weeks, Israeli troops have been documented both removing Palestinian flags from lampposts in the area and protecting settlers as they remove the flags too.

There is no immediate comment from the army on the incident.
