JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian journalist said she was lightly injured by Israeli forces on Saturday during a solidarity protest for prisoners in Jerusalem.

Diala Jweihan, a freelance photographer, told Ma'an that she was covering a protest in Jerusalem's Old City when Israeli soldiers threw her to the ground. She was taking pictures of a man who was being arrested by soldiers at the time.

Jweihan said she suffered light neck and back injuries.

Dozens of people gathered in a peaceful protest to support prisoners who are on hunger strike, Jweihan said, adding that one man was arrested by Israeli forces.
