Police publish footage of the Palestinian thought to have been armed who was shot in the Shuafat refugee camp.

The video shows the suspect pointing what appears to be a gun at the forces, then running away as officers open fire.

At one point he throws the item away, before collapsing.

The “gun” later turns out to be fake and not a real firearm, a police spokesperson says.

The suspect is listed in critical condition after being shot.
