Palestinian Authority accuses Israeli military of running over body of militant in West Bank

The Palestinian Authority has condemned an incident in Tulkarm in the occupied West Bank on Monday night in which an Israeli military vehicle ran over the body of a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad soon after a firefight.

Surveillance video of the incident, geolocated by CNN, shows three militants, one of them armed with an assault rifle, running before they are shot repeatedly. A separate video shows a wheeled Israeli military vehicle running over the body of one of the men, dragging it for several meters.

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that incident showed the “documented brutality committed by an Israeli military vehicle by running over the body of a martyr in Tulkarm.”

The Al Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, claimed that the three men killed – who were between the ages of 22 and 24 – were its members.

CNN has reached out to the Israel Defense Forces for comment on the incident.
