This is not an isolated case.
On 13 October, the Palestinian Journalists' Union condemned the continued systematic targeting of journalists following an attack, against photojournalists. On 5 October the IFJ issued a statement condemning the shooting of two Palestinians by Israeli bullets. These attacks come in the context of increasing violence perpetuated by Israeli forces on Palestinian journalists.
IFJ General Secretary, Anthony Bellanger, said "We condemn this dangerous and illegal treatment of Palestinian journalists by Israeli soldiers under international law. Israeli government must take immediate actions to prevent such attacks on working journalists from happening again.”
The Federation has also urged media professionals to follow basic safety guidelines when reporting and called on palestinian media to ensure their staff receive proper safety training, including freelancers.
