A new video shows an Israeli soldier shaking hands with a settler leader just after the soldier was filmed apparently executing an injured Palestinian in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.
The video has emerged as Israelis, including top leaders, are rallying around the accused killer.
Abd al-Fattah Yusri al-Sharif was shot dead along with Ramzi Aziz al-Qasrawi, both of them 21 years old, after allegedly stabbing and moderately wounding a soldier in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron’s Old City on Thursday.
The slaying of al-Sharif, who was lying on the ground incapacitated but moving his head before he was shot, was caught on video.
The new video shows the shooter “shaking hands with far-right activist Baruch Marzel” while al-Sharif’s body is removed from the scene, according to Haaretz.
The US-born Marzel, a former leader of the violent group Kach, is notorious for fomenting attacks on Palestinians.
