A video showing an Israeli police dog mauling a 19-year-old Palestinian man during an arrest released Wednesday has sparked outrage.
The Palestinian Commission of Detainees Affairs accused Israeli forces of deliberately letting the dog maul the young Palestinian, even though he wasn’t resisting arrest.
“The occupation army deliberately let a police dog maul the young man, Malik Mualla, and terrify him,” the commission said.
The incident took place Monday when Israeli forces arrested Mualla in the occupied West Bank city of Al-Bireh.
Israeli forces raided an industrial facility where the detainee works as a guard in the Umm al-Sharait neighborhood.
The video shows the young man raising his hands when soldiers aimed rifles at him.
