229115_345x230[1]RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — Five Palestinian journalists were injured on Wednesday as Israeli forces dispersed a protest at Qalandiya checkpoint.

Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and stun grenades while dispersing a protest by the Israeli military checkpoint, injuring Nida Younis, Naela Araj, Mufeed Abu Hasna, Omar Abdul-Raziq, and chairman of the Palestinian Journalist’s Syndicate Abdel Nasser Najjar.

The head of the syndicate, Muhammad Lahham, said that Israeli forces fired tear gas at peaceful demonstrators.

The protests were part of a worldwide campaign calling for freedom of movement for Palestinian journalists, Lahham said.

An Israeli military spokesman told Ma’an that around 70 Palestinians hurled rocks at Israeli forces, who “responded with riot dispersal means.”
