A shocking video of Israeli soldiers shooting a blindfolded and handcuffed Palestinian teenager has been making the rounds on the social media and making international news headlines.
The video that went viral on Wednesday showed a blindfolded and handcuffed Palestinian teenager who has been arrested on suspicion of taking part in a protest near one of the Palestinian villages in Bethlehem in the West Bank, Haaretz reported.
The young man is indiscriminately shot in both legs as he tries to flee the Israeli soldiers.
A photo was shared on the social media documenting the moment when the teenager tried to flee followed by Israeli soldiers who immediately shot him in the legs.
A video later showed the Israeli soldiers pointing guns at people trying to reach the teenager, later identified as Osama al-Badan. They appeared holding guns pointed towards people holding their cameras and documenting the moment.
Osama was reportedly detained at the scene after being shot. However, media reports confirmed later that he is at a Palestinian hospital receiving medical care and in stable condition.
