Were the Activists Really Unarmed?

This picture has been making the rounds across the Internet.


It’s apparently from the same protest that featured the IDF officer striking one of the protestors in the face with his gun. Some are claiming the protester is holding a knife in his hand.

Were the protesters really involved in a “peaceful march” as depicted in the media or are claims that the video of the event selectively edited out protesters violence true?

Tune in for updates as the story develops.
