Israel Defense Forces soldiers came to the aid of a Palestinian man who had been attacked because he was thought to be Jewish, Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) revealed on Twitter on Tuesday.

A picture posted by the MFA shows an Israeli soldier tending to a wound on the victim’s forehead, while another image shows the soldier applying pressure to the back of his head. The Palestinian, who is seen in a later photo wearing a bandage wrapped around his chin, has blood stains on his face, arm and shirt.

The MFA linked to a Facebook post which provided more details about the incident. According to the post, the Palestinian man was injured by rocks thrown at him by fellow Palestinians, who had mistaken him for a Jew. The MFA also clarified that the facts about the incident were “contrary to what was published” by the Palestinian news outlet Quds News Network, which claimed in a Facebook post on Monday that the Arab Hebron resident was attacked by “Jewish settlers.”

    Of course for the West, IL is responsible for the crimes that Pal commit against Pal.

    Where is the B’Tselem video? After all, B’Tselem claim to always be in the right place when innocent Palestinians are attacked.

    Apparently, videos are only taken when the IDF can be turned into perpetrators. Bassem Eid resigned from B’Tselem when this Israeli NGO refused to enquire into Palestinian Human Rights Abuses of which there are many.

    The IDF IS the most moral army in the world. The US is now adopting Israel’s “knock on roof” technology to spare civilian casualties when fighting ISIS.

  • That is Israel and a Jew for you, a PA would have used a knife instead of a bandage.

    Lies and more lies sprout from the mouths of terrorists. If Islam is to blame then Muslims claim the glory. If Islam makes a mistake then they blame Israel. They cannot lose.

  • This further proves the IDF is a just and honorable force for good.

    I would have let him die and then blame the Arabs who attacked him.

    They hate us. What don’t you get about that?

    Stop being nice. Try winning.

    And the IDF received how many ‘Thank you’ notes from his family and friends? Proud of the IDF!!!
