A Palestinian boy, 16-year-old Hamzeh Abu Hashem, arrested for throwing stones at soldiers in December, was later threatened by two Israeli soldiers with their dogs. One of the dogs bit Hamzeh, who after being treated for dog bites at a hospital, was sentenced to six months in prison. The video, posted recently by a right-wing activist and former member of Israel’s parliament, Michael Ben Ari, has since gone viral on social media prompting the Israeli military to launch an investigation. One soldier is heard saying, “Who’s a chicken, eh? Who’s a chicken?” while another can be heard giving orders to a dog to “get him”.
