A video widely shared on social media purportedly shows an Israeli military bulldozer approaching and moving the dead body of a Palestinian protester towards a separation fence of the Gaza border on Sunday.

Initial reports indicate that the body was “confiscated” by Israeli forces.

Israeli forces shot dead one Palestinian protester near the Gaza border, before a bulldozer extracted the body.

Footage captures the lifeless body of the Palestinian protester dangling from the bulldozer, which was escorted by an Israeli Merkava battle tank.

Palestinian protesters meanwhile dragged back the body of another protester that was wounded in the gunfire.

So here we are again woooh! graphics didn’t see a thing blurred out as usual. If I can watch a terrorist cut off the head of a 13 yr. old boy I certainly can watch a correction here ( It is a articulated front end loader not a bulldozer idiots.) It didn’t drag a body it scraped under the body to lift it up LIARS.
Words have consequences.

Well, they took example on Hamas!

In fact, what happens here is simple : it’s a security measure : IDF doesn’t knows if the body carries an explosive belt or not and both Hamas and PIJ used explosive belts in the past, so the bulldozer allows to move the body without risk.
Using thermobaric shells would simplify : at 2000°C, there’s nothing left of explosive belts, well, there might be nothng left from the body too, this may not be practical for identification purposes, but who cares?
