Police officer filmed beating Ethiopian soldier not to face criminal charges

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein has decided to close the criminal case against a police officer who was filmed beating an Ethiopian IDF soldier in April.

The video, which appeared to show an unprovoked attack against the soldier, Damas Pakadeh, sparked weeks of protests among the Ethiopian community in Israel.

In lieu of criminal charges, the Israel Police will decide what disciplinary measures the officer will face.
