Israeli police attack Palestinians, journalists, in occupied Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, Sunday, June 06, 2021 (WAFA) – Several Palestinians, including a journalist, were injured as Israeli police attacked a press conference held by Jerusalemite activists and residents in front of the Israeli police station at Salah al-Dein Street in the occupied East Jerusalem, where two Palestinian activists are being held and interrogated.

Israeli police today detained Palestinian activists Muna al-Kurd and her twin brother Mohammed, who have become the face of a campaign against the forced expulsion of Palestinians from their homes in Sheik Jarrah neighborhood for the benefit of settlers.

Israeli police attacked the press conference participants and journalists with stun grenades, tear gas canisters, and rubber-coated steel bullets, injuring a number of people, including a journalist, and causing many to suffocate due to tear gas inhalation.

Al-Jazeera correspondent Najwan Samri was taken to hospital after being injured while covering the events.
