Unedited French Video Shows al-Dura Not Hit by Israeli Fire

French TV in 2000 broadcast news reports purportedly showing 12-year-old Mohammed al-Dura being shot by Israeli soldiers.

But Denis Jeambar, editor-in-chief of the French news weekly l’Express, and filmmaker Daniel Leconte, who saw raw, unedited video of the shooting taken by the France 2 network, said it’s not possible for the boy to have been shot by Israeli soldiers, as claimed, and that the videocassette is full of staged scenes of faked injuries.

“The only ones who could hit the child were the Palestinians from their position,” Leconte said. “If they had been Israeli bullets, they would be very strange bullets because they would have needed to go around the corner.”
