The IDF says surveillance camera footage circulated by Palestinian media showing a soldier pulling a Palestinian boy’s shirt off and slapping him is a “very serious incident.”

The incident, which occurred in a store in the West Bank city of Hebron “is contrary to IDF values and protocols,” the military says.

The soldier is expected to face disciplinary action.
