Settler who shot Palestinians in Hebron remanded 4 more days
Jerusalem judge rejects Zeev Braude's line of defense, says he clearly instigated clash with Palestinians.
The Jerusalem Magistrates Court on Sunday extended by four days the remand of Zeev Braude, the settler who was filmed shooting at Palestinians following the evacuation of a disputed house in the West Bank city of Hebron last week.
An activist with the B'Tselem human rights group caught Braude on film shooting at Palestinians at short range, hitting one. In the video, the injured man is seen falling to the ground. He then gets up and begins throwing stones at Braude.
Braude turned himself in to the police last week, saying he had come to complain the Palestinians shown in the film had tried to lynch him.
However, the Jerusalem judge on Sunday rejected Braude's line of defense, and stated that the video shows him clearly taking aim at the Palestinian and instigating the confrontation.
