GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – A Palestinian journalist was attacked by unidentified masked men in a street in Gaza City Wednesday morning.

Ahmad Fayyoumi told Ma’an that while he was standing in the street, a motorcycle stopped beside him and two masked men got off and hit him with an iron bar on his hand dropping a bag he carried.

The assailants stole the bag and fled the scene.

Fayyoumi confirmed that his laptop, a camera and a sum of money were in the stolen bag. Several bystanders, he said, witnessed the attack which took only a few seconds.

Fayyoumi notified Gaza police who opened an investigation.
