Soldiers on Video: We Did Not Act due to Photographers

Soldiers who were seen in a video, recorded last Friday, taking shelter from a disturbance in the Samarian (Shomron) Arab village of Kadum, said they wanted to use riot-control measures but were turned down by their commanders, according to a Monday-morning report by the Ma'ariv daily.

Military sources explained the decision as a wish to avoid increasing disturbances. The soldiers said the decision stemmed from the large number of photographers in the area.
