A new video has emerged showing the moment 16-year-old Palestinian boy, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, was bundled into a car in al-Quds (Jerusalem), only to be found killed hours later.

Dramatic new footage, obtained by the Telegraph, shows Mohammed being approached by two men and then forcibly pushed into a car.

While images in the film are indistinct, the Abu Khdeir family say they provide vital evidence of his abduction before his body was found burned in an al-Quds forest.

The teen’s aunt Bushra Abu Khdeir explained that Mohamed could be seen struggling in a part of the video, which appears consistent with the timings and account given by witnesses.

According to reports, the boy’s relatives also said that the Israeli police possess more security-camera footage that shows Abu Khdeir’s abduction from other angles.

The incident happened a day after Israel buried three settlers, whose bodies had been found in a field near the village of Hilhul, north of the city of al-Khalil (Hebron) in the West Bank.

Tel Aviv claims the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, is responsible for the death of the three. However, Hamas rejects the allegation.

Israeli forces killed several Palestinians and arrested hundreds of others, including Hamas members and lawmakers, as part of the military operations that were purportedly carried out in search of the three settlers, who Israel claimed had gone missing on June 12.
