A video released on Wednesday shows how armed undercover Israeli forces dressed as Palestinians helped to throw stones at IDF forces before turning on the group.
The video shows armed undercover Israeli agents who had infiltrated the group of Palestinian stone-throwers suddenly pull weapons on the group they are throwing stones with, shooting and wounding three of them, one seriously. The incident occurred outside Beit El, near Ramallah, in the West Bank.
Reuters correspondent Luke Baker witnessed how the armed undercover agents helped to incite the stone throwing and tweeted the video below with the text: “Footage in Ramallah shows undercover #Israeli police throwing stones at Israeli forces and inciting #Palestinian youth to do the same.”
Israel maintains a cadre of undercover police units, well versed in Arabic language and local culture and often drawn from the ranks of Druze, Jews and Palestinian citizens of Israel.
This 11-minute video posted by Wattan TV shows the Israeli undercover agents working side by side with uniformed Israeli occupation forces.
