Jerusalem - Israel’s army says military police have opened an investigation into a raid in which a Palestinian was killed.

It made the announcement Wednesday after new footage emerged showing the 33-year-old running down an alley with a long object on his shoulder. A soldier opens fire and he falls, and then other soldiers can be seen beating and kicking him, and dragging his body.

The raid took place Thursday in the West Bank town of Jericho. On Friday, the military said the man had died from tear gas exposure. Media reports citing autopsy results said he died from gunfire.

Israel’s Channel 10 TV quoted the soldier who opened fire as saying he was not sure if he hit the man. The soldier said he felt his life was in danger.
