Footage has emerged on social media of Israeli soldiers reportedly laughing as a Palestinian man is crushed at a gate. 


A video of the incident, which took place at the Atarot Industrial Zone in east Jerusalem, was uploaded by pro-Palestine activists onto Facebook. The footage appears to show a Palestinian worker squeezing through a small gap in the gate only for it to be closed on him - purposely or otherwise. The man can be seen collapsing as he loses consciousness.

Israeli soldiers watching CCTV footage of the event can be heard laughing. One reportedly said: "It crushed him. This guy is stupid," according to the Middle East Monitor
