Shoot and lie | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Shoot and lie

The video is an apparent attempt to suggest that Mizher forfeited special protection afforded to medics under international law by taking off his vest and throwing a stone at a soldier.

But like most of Israel’s attempts to justify its use of lethal force against Palestinians, it doesn’t hold water.

It is based on a lie, intended to cover up the intentional killing of a medic.

An investigation by the human rights group Al-Haq found that Mizher had not been on the rooftop before he was killed.

Additionally, the figure seen in the video is wearing a white shirt under his high-visibility vest. Mizher was wearing a black shirt under his vest, as is shown in a group photo of the volunteer medics taken hours before a bullet to the stomach took his life, published as an appendix in Al-Haq’s report.

The video, which includes no time stamps, shows a rooftop in al-Walajiya neighborhood, according to Al-Haq. Mizher was shot on Dheisheh’s main street, 300 meters away from the rooftop shown in the video.
