JNS.org A senior Israel Defense Forces official has cast doubt on the accuracy of a recently released video that purportedly shows the deaths of two Palestinian teens near the Ofer military prison on May 15.

“Since I have a lot of experience with forgery, I won’t say anything unequivocal until we conclude the investigation,” an anonymous senior IDF official told Haaretz.

“We have asked to be given the additional bullets that were found, and we are willing to receive them now to conclude the inquiry,” said the official. “Since the video appeared, we will try to corroborate it against the battalion commander who was there.”
