Soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) using 24-year-old Sameh Amira, a resident of the Palestinan city of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, as a human shield as they conduct a house raid. Amira was not wanted by the IDF and lived next door to the house raided. The video from which this clip was taken was shot by the Associated Press. The IDF said that upon review of the tape it sees nothing wrong with what its troops did in Nablus and said that its troops operate within the boundaries of the "laws of war."
