Israeli Forces Target Journalists in West Bank

Mel Frykberg, IPS News

KAFR QADDOUM, West Bank, Apr 7 2015 (IPS) - It is becoming increasingly risky to cover clashes and protests between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters in the West Bank as the number of journalists injured, in what appears to be deliberate targeting by Israeli security forces, continues to rise.

During the last 12 months, Israel’s Foreign Press Association (FPA) has issued numerous protests at the manhandling, harassment and shooting of both members of the foreign media and Palestinian journalists.
