CCTV footage which purports to show the moment a Palestinian teenager was kidnapped before being killed has been obtained by Sky News.
The video allegedly shows men bundling Mohammed Abu Khadair into a car in East Jerusalem, shortly before his burned body was found in a forest.
The footage emerged as tensions heightened in the region with Israel’s military sending troop reinforcements to its border with the Gaza Strip.
In another development, the official Twitter feed of the Israel Defence Forces was hacked, stating that rockets had hit a major nuclear facility, causing a leak.
The tweet, which was quickly removed read: “#WARNING: Possible nuclear leak in the region after 2 rockets hit Dimona nuclear facility.”
The IDF later confirmed the tweet was a hoax vowing to “combat terror on all fronts including the cyber dimension”.
The Khadair family say their 17-year-old was on his way to the local mosque to attend the morning prayer when he was taken.
His body was found around 5am by police in a forest in West Jerusalem.
Although the CCTV footage cannot be verified, the family says it has been taken by Israeli police and is being examined as part of the investigation into the murder.
Israeli police have been keen to stress that they are yet to establish a clear motive for the murder.
They say they cannot yet rule out a criminal, rather than nationalistic revenge motive.
The incident took place hours after large crowds of Israelis demonstrated in Jerusalem.
They called for tougher action to be taken by the government in response to the kidnap and murder of three Israeli teenagers, whose bodies were discovered on Monday afternoon.
Crowds chanting “death to Arabs” gathered in the centre of the city and many Arab residents were protected from would-be lynch mobs by police.
Israeli police confirmed they arrested 47 Israelis for unruly behaviour on the night before Mohammed was killed.
