Watch: Israeli forces fire on TV crew in Jerusalem

July 6, 2014 11:51 A.M. (Updated: July 13, 2014 10:31 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli forces fired stun grenades at a Palestinian TV crew covering clashes between Israeli troops and young Palestinian men in al-Tur neighborhood in East Jerusalem on Saturday.

Witnesses told Ma’an that Palestine Today satellite channel reporter Ahmad al-Budeiri and his cameraman were hurt after Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades directly at them.

Three protestors were hit by rubber-coated bullets during the clashes. One was taken to hospital and had seven stitches in his foot which was cut by a rubber-coated bullet.

In the same neighborhood, Israeli forces fired stun grenades at a group of young men walking in the main street and forced them to go inside a coffee shop.

Separately, Israeli troops detained four young Palestinian men during fierce clashes in the Ras al-Amoud neighborhood in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Also, witnesses said an Israeli settler fired gunshots into the air near the Christian Quarter in the Old City.

An Israeli police spokesman said forces responded to rioting in the area with non-lethal means.
