An Israeli police officer pushed a disabled Palestinian man out of his wheelchair on Sunday in the West Bank city of Hebron.
Footage captured on a mobile phone shows the officer knocking 53 year old Majed al-Fakhouri backwards and sending him sprawling into the street as a crowd looks on.
The incident happened after a 14 year old girl was shot, after she had allegedly tried to stab an Israeli policeman.
Mr al-Fakhouri said he had been trying to reach the girl to attempt first aid.
The officer told him to turn back and when he refused, the officer proceeded to tip his chair, forcing him to the floor.
“He then turned me over and my head hit the ground,” al-Fakhouri told The Daily Telegraph.
Members of the shocked crowd then rush to al-Fakhouri’s aid, before another officer is seen pointing his gun in a man’s face and a stun grenade is thrown towards those looking on.
The explosive device which detonated moments later sent the onlookers running away.
Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the incident was being investigated. The girl who was shot, Yasmin A-Tamimi was taken to hospital in a serious condition.
