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."

I hear,that when Obama's term as POTUS is over,his conscience is SO heavy with hypocrisy that he's joining the International Solidarity Movement as a civilian Constitutional lawyer & taking a sabbatical in Palestine's Occupied Territories & then in Gaza,to write his memoirs.Walk the path of Jesus,Obama!You'll find ALL the great prophets standing together,at the WALL,protesting Zionism's inhumanity in the Holy Land!

dressing up a provacator or terrorist with "press" shirt does not make him/her a journalist

The five journalists action yet once again proofs all they are interested is in disruption. That's how they get attention and money, more money. Palestinian issue would have been resolved in 1947/8. However, they realize that would stop the freebies and pitiful attention of the World and more money flow! That's exactly what they are NOT interested. There is no Palestinian nation. An absurd creation! A geographical territory with Arab tribes from all surrounding countries, like Jordan.

southparkbear/ usa...et al., to dress an unseeing so called journalist with a band around his eyes reading "JOURNO" and another around his "backside" with the same word "JOURNO", which end can you believe?
