An Israeli rights group has released an amateur video of Israeli soldiers surrounding and questioning a terrified 8-year-old Palestinian boy in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron. The group B'Tselem, which posted the video, said the soldiers led Sufian Abu Hitah around the neighborhood to identify other boys whom they suspected of having thrown stones and a firebomb at a nearby Jewish settlement.At one point, he is seen being led through a Hebron street surrounded by seven soldiers. The city is divided, with about 850 Israeli settlers living in heavily guarded enclaves in an Israeli-controlled center while the rest of the area is under Palestinian self-rule, making it the only Palestinian population center in the West Bank with a major Israeli army presence.
