JERUSALEM (AP) — A group of Israeli reservists critical of the military's treatment of Palestinians has released new photos that appear to show Israeli soldiers abusing Palestinians.
One picture shows a soldier holding an assault rifle to the head of a blindfolded Palestinian man. Another shows a soldier spray painting "Be right back" on the wall of a Gaza home.
Breaking the Silence said Monday it published the pictures on its Facebook page to rebut the military's contention that improper conduct by soldiers is an aberration.
It was impossible to confirm the authenticity of the photos, but they resemble others that have surfaced in recent months. The military said it knew of the photos but had no immediate reaction.
