Misschien hebben ze liever geen pottenkijkers bij het pacificeren van de inboorlingen. Of misschien is dit gewoon een gevolg van ‘ermee weg kunnen komen’. Wie zal het zeggen?
The Foreign Press Association on Sunday accused the Israeli army of “deliberately targeting” journalists after soldiers fired rubber bullets and threw stun grenades at photojournalists clearly identified as press. […]
The FPA said it had complained about some 10 such incidents over the past two years, none of which had been properly investigated, adding that the army and the military police had a “dismal track record” for looking into such incidents.
“On Friday afternoon, Israeli forces threw stun grenades at FPA photojournalists as they were leaving Qalandia. The FPA members had put their hands in the air, indicating to the forces that they were leaving at which point the grenades were thrown from close quarters directly at their backs,” it said.
Earlier an Italian freelance photographer covering the same incident had almost been hit in the face by a rubber bullet, it said.
“Fortunately the photographer was taking pictures at the time and the rubber bullet shattered the camera instead of his head. All the photographers in question wore clearly-marked jackets and helmets,” the FPA said.
