3 Journalists injured by Israeli forces in Gaza

3 journalists injured

Three Palestinian journalists were injured east of Khan Younis on Friday as Israeli occupation forces attacked protesters in the ongoing Great March of Return at many encampments on the Gaza-Israel border.

Journalist Abdul-Rahman al-Khatib intensely suffocated from teargas inhalation, and journalist Sulaiman Abu Zarifa was hit and injured by a teargas canister in his foot, while journalist Hamza Shami was hit by a canister in his shoulder, according to press sources.

The 46-day Great March of Return protests started on March 30 and are set to reach their crescendo on May 15, which marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (catastrophe), in which over 750,000 Palestinians were forcibly displaced from their homes to make way for the creation of “Israel” in 1948.
