Added On April 11, 2018

The Israeli army has opened an initial inquiry into a video of a sniper shooting a Palestinian.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Israeli Defense Forces said the video was filmed on Friday afternoon, during violent riots in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip. 

According to the statement, the video depicts a short part of the response to a violent riot, which included rock hurling and attempts to sabotage the security fence, and lasted about two hours.
After none of these were successful, a single bullet was fired towards one of the Palestinians who is suspected of organizing and leading this incident.
