Nablus (Inside Palestine Today)- Israeli occupation forces on Friday attacked and injured Palestinian journalalist, Shadi Jarar’ah, with rubber-coated metal bullet while covering a weekly protest against Israel’s settlement expansion in Beita village in Nablus.
Local sources said that journalist Shadi Jarar’ah was injured by the rubber-coated metal bullets fired directly towards the peaceful protesters to suppress them. The forces have also intensively fired tear-gas canisters and live ammunition.
The occupation forces deliberately target journalists over their documentation of the attacks.
Last Friday, the occupation forces attacked at least three journalists with rubber-coated metal bullets and tear-gas canisters, injuring them, including QNN correspondent Najlaa Zaitoun, photojournalist Abdullah Bahsh, and correspondent of Palestine TV Bakr Abdel Haq.
Residents of Beita village have been organizing weekly protests against the construction of an Israeli settlement outpost on Jabal Sabih.
