    Around the 2:20 mark something doesn't make sense. At the point of the first gun shot the camera man puts his hand over the front of the camera. But we can see the guy in the green shirt is within touching distance. Then no more than a second later he is 5 meters away over a load of rubble.

    Also in the interview with the camera man he says the guy was shot in the chest with the second or third shot yet there is no blood on his chest. And looking at the sniper rifles used by the Israeli forces there would have been considerable damage done to his chest as they are mainly using 7.62x51mm (AK-47 rounds pretty much) or a .338 lapua magnum which would have caused even more damage.

    Without raw footage it would be impossible to tell whether or not it is real or fake. But I am currently doubting its credibility.

    If it's not fake then it's a demented soldier who doesn't represent the IDF. How do I know this? Because the IDF are far more capable of killing civilians than the current death toll indicates (terrible as the suffering has been), should they actually want to. If it were their mission to kill civilians, Gazans would go the way of the Armenians and the Tsutsis.

    Ye theres much hatred in Israel towards Palestinians and vice versa. Theres a good chance it's just a pissed off soldier. And theres a good chance there are a lot of soldiers like that.

    You can see the edit. Plus the noise isn't right for the shot.

    The ISM have a history of fabricating stuff and of helping terrorists attack Israel.

    It's fake as hell.

    The guy in green was right by the cameraman from 2:05 to 2:24 (you can see his shirt at the beginning and when the camera starts to shake). At 2:25 the man in green is suddenly lying on his back few metres away from the cameraman.

    This seems fake.

    If it is not fake, how do you know that the sniper was from Israel?
