Soldier videos of Gaza detainees could breach international law, experts say

Legal experts say videos of Gazan detainees stripped, bound and blindfolded that were filmed and uploaded online by Israeli soldiers could breach international law.
 
International law says detainees must not be exposed to unnecessary humiliation or public curiosity.
 
Dr. Mark Ellis, a leading United Nations advisor to international criminal tribunals, said the footage from Israeli soldiers might violate the recognised rules for treating prisoners of war.
 
BBC Verify says it has viewed hundreds of videos openly shared by Israeli soldiers in Gaza since November 2023.
 
The News agency says it verified eight showing detainees.
 
The Israeli Defence Force says it has terminated the service of one of the reservists identified in the video.
 
It says those kinds of videos do not represent its values.
