PressTV-Israel forces injured several journalists in the West Bank



Several Palestinian and international journalists were injured by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank, where they protested the violence of the Tel Aviv regime against the press in the occupied territories.

Israeli forces fired tear gas to disperse journalists gathered at Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem on Saturday afternoon.

The head of the Palestinian Federation of Journalists Nasser Abu Bakr was among the wounded.

Abu Bakr demanded that anyone who commits violence against journalists be responsible.

He said international journalists, including members of the International Federation of Journalists and the Arab Federation of Journalists, had participated in the demonstration.

Since the beginning of the current year, there have been about 7,000 violations and attacks by Palestinians by the Israeli army.

Palestinian journalists Ahmed Abu Hussein and Yasser Morag succumbed earlier this year to Israeli gunshot wounds while respecting protests against the occupation along the border between the besieged Gaza Strip and occupied land.

Tel Aviv therefore sought a media malfunction in the criminal actions of its soldiers when Israeli cabinet ministers approved in mid-June a contradictory bill that would criminalize certain military operations.

According to the proposed legislation, anyone who is photographed, photographed or photographed by Israeli forces "with the intention of undermining the spirit" of the army "will be sentenced to five years' imprisonment" and "intend to harm Israel's security" as a prison.

The bill, widely cited as an attack on freedom of the press, needs a number of parliamentary votes to become law.

In recent months, Israeli forces have been caught in a large number of cases with cruel cameras by Palestinians, with video clips going to Virali on the Internet and provoking condemnations by the regime's army.
