Israeli forces attack journalists staging sit-in in support of injured photojournalist

 

BETHLEHEM, Sunday, November 17, 2019 (WAFA) – Dozens of journalists Sunday suffered from suffocation after inhaling tear gas fired at them by Israeli forces during a solidarity sit-in in support of injured photojournalist Moath Amarneh, to the north of the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Local witnesses told WAFA Israeli soldiers fired a barrage of tear gas bombs towards journalists who organized a sit-in at the northern entrance of Bethlehem city in solidarity with Amarneh, who lost his left eye after being seriously injured by a metallic bullet fired by an Israeli soldier in the Surif region of the Hebron governorate, where he was covering a protest against land confiscation.

Two journalists were detained during the sit-in.
