Soldiers order Hebron resident to take down Palestinian flag from his roof, 2014
19 March 2014
Shortly after B'Tselem volunteer Shadi Sidr filmed a settler trying to take down a Palestinian flag from Sidr’s roof, five soldiers arrived on site, demanding that Sidr take down the flag on pain of arrest. The soldiers left after they could not persuade him to take down the flag. B'Tselem reiterates that soldiers must safeguard Palestinians, the protected population of the West Bank, and most certainly not assist trespassing settlers.
