Video of Israeli Soldiers Cheering the Shooting of Unarmed Palestinian Goes Viral

•, JW Williams

The IDF (Israeli Defense Force) denied the event happened during the current protests, the 'March of Return', but instead claimed that the video was recorded in December, and that the Palestinian victim was leading a riot, which is not supprted by the video itself?.

Israel's position in the current conflict on the Gaza border is that Hamas is planning a mass surge against the fence to topple it and infiltrate Israeli territory, and/ or Hamas is inciting the Palestinians to provoke the Israeli army for a high body count, in order to garner international sympathy.  Hamas leaders have said that their ultimate goal is to remove the border and liberate Palestine.  Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar said that Palestinians would "tear down the wall and tear out their (Israeli's) hearts."  Israelis fear that hostile Palestinians are determined to destroy Israel by any means possible.

However, the Palestinians are massively outgunned by Israel by many multitudes.  The violence is always asymmetrical in Israel's favor.  Israelis have killed at least 32 Palestinians in the current protest, while no Israelis have been injured.
