During a search for wanted persons in Qalqilya on August 29, 2007, soldiers destroyed seven housing units and forced male residents of the neighbourhood to strip in front of their families and neighbours – one of whom captured the incident on tape. The footage offers a rare glimpse into military procedures in the West Bank.
