On Friday, 10 Feb. 2017, Madama residents went out to enjoy the good
weather at a spot south of the village. Soldiers guarding the nearby
settlement of Yitzhar came there and threw tear-gas canisters at the
villagers. Ahmad Ziyadah, a B’Tselem camera project volunteer, began
filming the soldiers and was ordered to leave. When he refused, he was
violently detained. When his brother came to help him, a soldier fired a
rubber-coated metal bullet at short range at his knee. Ziyadah, who did
no more than film the soldiers, was kept in custody for six days with
the backing of a military court. The footage, which shows only the end
of the incident, was edited by B’Tselem.
