Israeli Military Admits Protocol Violation in West Bank Incident

In a controversial incident, the Israeli military has acknowledged that its forces breached protocol by strapping a wounded Palestinian man to the front of a vehicle during a raid in Jenin, West Bank. This admission follows the circulation of a video on social media capturing the event.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) stated that the man, suspected of involvement in terrorist activities, was injured in an exchange of fire during the raid. According to the injured man’s family, their request for an ambulance was denied, and instead, the army strapped him to the bonnet of a jeep and drove away.

Eventually, the man was handed over to the Red Crescent for medical treatment. The IDF has promised a thorough investigation into the incident, emphasizing that the actions seen in the video violate their operational standards and values.

Eyewitnesses identified the injured man as Mujahed Azmi. The IDF’s official statement on the raid detailed the encounter: “This morning [Saturday], during counter-terrorism operations to apprehend wanted suspects in the area of Wadi Burqin, terrorists opened fire at IDF troops, who responded with fire. During the exchange of fire, one of the suspects was injured and apprehended. In violation of orders and standard operating procedures, the suspect was taken by the forces while tied on top of a vehicle.”

The incident occurs amid escalating violence in the West Bank, a situation exacerbated by the ongoing conflict in Gaza following Hamas’s attack on southern Israel on October 7. According to the United Nations, at least 480 Palestinians, including armed group members, attackers, and civilians, have been killed in conflict-related incidents in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since the conflict began.
