Photojournalist among two injured by Israeli army gunfire in southern West Bank

Two Palestinians, including a photojournalist, today sustained injuries from Israeli army gunfire in Beit Ummar town, north of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to a media activist.

Mohammad Awad said that the occupation forces barged their way into the Asida area of the town, triggering confrontations.

The gun-toting soldiers opened gunfire towards Palestinians and showered them with volleys of tear gas canisters, hitting two by live ammunition in the thigh.

The two casualties were rushed to a hospital for urgent treatment. One of them was identified as the photojournalist Ehab ‘Allami, who was covering the raid.

Awad added that dozens of people suffered tear gas suffocation. They were treated at the scene.
