Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) were caught on tape beating a group of six journalists, including AFP photographer Jafar Eshtayya, in the village of Kafr Qaddum on Sunday.
The incident, filmed by a volunteer for Israeli rights group B'Tselem, happened as the six journalists were covering protests in the northern West Bank village. The video shows Israeli forces stopping the group of men before beating them with sticks.
According to Shatha Yaish, an AFP journalist based in Jerusalem, Eshtayya is still recovering from his wounds. The photographer suffered a broken hand.
Palestine Today TV's Fares Fares and Xinhua news agency's Nidal Eshtayya were also hurt in the incident.
The journalists were then taken into custody where they were reportedly forced to sign pledges not to cover the protests in Kafr Qaddum.
