Attack on photographers by Israeli police
Brussels - KUNA

 The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) Friday condemned an attack by Israeli police on photographers near Silwad in the West Bank last Sunday, 26 October.
According to reports, Israeli police fired rubber bullets at the photographers at close range while they were taking pictures of protests that followed the funeral of a Palestinian activist.
Two journalists are said to have received minor injuries in the attack. One was a reporter from Associated Press who is said to have injured his arm. Another freelance photographer from Switzerland, Lazar Simeonov, also injured his hand and his camera was damaged.
"We strongly condemn this reckless and brutal attack which showed no regard for the safety of the journalists who were carrying out legitimate work to ensure the truth is told," said IFJ President Jim Boumelha.
"This incident is yet another example of the Israeli soldiers' blatant disregard for the safety, freedoms and rights of journalists covering the conflict," he said in a statement.
He called on the Israeli government to carry out a thorough investigation to identify and punish those soldiers who carried out this act and ensure they face the full weight of justice.
The Brussels-based IFJ represents more than 600, 000 journalists in 134 countries.
