While covering clashes with Palestinians
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– At least two journalists were injured when Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) brutally attacked a group of journalists while covering clashes with Palestinian youths east of Bethlehem on Friday. Local sources affirmed that Israeli forces attacked and injured the two journalists Raed Sharif and Radhi Karama while covering the confrontation. The two injured journalists were taken to hospital for treatment, the sources added. The journalist Karama said that Israeli forces stopped him along with his colleague and suddenly fired a teargas bomb at his foot before savagely attacking both of them. The two journalists suffered different wounds and bruises all over their bodies. Earlier Friday, IOF soldiers attacked hundreds of Palestinians with teargas bombs at Mazmoria checkpoint while trying to cross into occupied Jerusalem to perform the last Friday prayer of Ramadan at al-Aqsa Mosque. Several injuries were reported during the attack while a number of nearby agricultural greenhouses were set on fire due to the heavy firing of teargas bombs.
