Shooting Back:
Israeli occupation filmed by 100 Palestinian

[h/t - Homeyra]

Update 8/1

One of the segments in the above video - the shooting of the handcuffed and blindfolded man - was filmed by a young Palestinian lady. We now find out that this girl's father has been "arrested" by Israeli solders. This from International Middle East Media Center:
Last week, soldiers kidnapped resident Jamal Hussein Ameera, 50, after his daughter managed to capture on film an Israeli soldiers shooting a Palestinian youth after they arrested and handcuffed him. The father was sentenced on Tuesday to one hundred days imprisonment.

The father was kidnapped by the soldiers less than a week after the story was exposed as the footage showed one of the soldiers aiming at the leg of the bound Palestinian youth and shooting him.

Ameera was kidnapped while working in his olive orchard close to an area where the Annexation Wall is being constructed.

Update 7/31

Palestinian boy, 10, dies as Israeli troops fire on demonstration
The escalation in violence came as an Israeli commander, Lieutenant Colonel Omri Bruberg, who leads the battalion operating around Ni'ilin, was suspended for 10 days until military investigators decide whether there is enough evidence to indict him.

Bruberg is under investigation for his alleged role in the close-range shooting of a 27-year-old Palestinian man, Ashraf Abu-Rahma in the foot this month.

The incident was recorded by a 17-year-old girl from the village and shows Omri holding him by the arm while another soldier, a metre away, fires at the 27-year-old Palestinian's foot.

Abu-Rahma had been protesting at the barrier in Ni'ilin when he was later detained, blindfolded and handcuffed by the army, which then imposed a four-day curfew on the town of Ni'ilin.
