JERUSALEM (AA) – Nedal Ishtiyyah, a photojournalist providing services for Anadolu Agency, sustained moderate injuries on Friday while covering an anti-occupation protest in the Palestinian West Bank.
Nedal was struck in the leg by a rubber bullet fired by Israeli troops while covering the demonstration in the town of Kafr Qaddum near the West Bank city of Nablus.
He is currently receiving treatment at a nearby medical facility.
Israel occupied the Palestinian West Bank, including East Jerusalem, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.
In a move never recognized by the international community, Israel unilaterally annexed the entire city in 1980, claiming it as the self-proclaimed Jewish state’s “eternal” capital.
