Israel Punishes Troops Filmed Attacking Hookah Smokers

Thursday, 18 August 2016 07:16 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military has sentenced a platoon sergeant to 10 days in jail and disciplined two other soldiers after video emerged of them shooting a stun grenade at Palestinian men smoking a water pipe in the northern West Bank.

In the video, captured by a security camera, an Israeli military jeep pulls up to the four Palestinians, stops briefly, then drives away as a soldier tosses a stun grenade and sends the Palestinians fleeing. Stun grenades are not lethal but produce bright light and loud noise.

The military said Thursday the troops were disciplined for acting "contrary to military standards."

Earlier this month, another video showed Israeli forces seizing and destroying a Palestinian girl's bicycle. The Justice Ministry said the incident was unprofessional but did not warrant criminal proceedings.
