Rights group: Israel’s intentional attack on journalists aims to suppress reality of its violations against Palestinians.

Palestinian journalist Ahmed Shawer and Palestinian photojournalist Abdul-Rahman al-Kahlout were wounded by Israeli forces as they opened fire at peaceful protests in West Bank, Gaza Strip.

Anadolu News Agency reported that Shawer was shot and wounded while reporting violent Israeli dispersal of peaceful weekly protests in the village of Kafr Qaddoum, in the west of the West Bank city of Nablus.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society paramedics treated him in the field and described his condition as stable.

Meanwhile, Safa News Agency reported that Al-Kahlout was shot in the right leg while covering the peaceful weekly protests, east of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights stated in a report, a copy of which was sent to Palestine Post 24, that 109 Palestinians were woundedduring the peaceful protests in Gaza on Friday, including 39 children, one woman, two paramedics and a journalist.

Palestinians are protesting against the ever-increasing Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, and against the Israeli siege in the Gaza Strip.
