Video: Al-Mayadeen journalist injured by Israeli forces in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a reporter from the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV channel on Sunday while she was reporting from the al-Issawiya neighborhood of Jerusalem. 

Hana Mahamid was shot in the face with a stun grenade while filming a report in the neighborhood. 

She had been broadcasting on clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youths near the home of Fadi Alloun, 19, who was shot dead overnight Saturday after allegedly attempting to stab a group of Israelis.

In a video of the incident, the reporter suddenly stops talking during a live report and begins screaming after being hit in the face with a canister.

She was wearing a flak-jacket with 'PRESS' marked clearly on both sides.

After being treated in a Jerusalem hospital, Mahamid broadcast another live report with her face and neck heavily bandaged.

She claims that Israeli forces fired a stun grenade directly at the Al-Mayadeen team who were covering the clashes.

A group of people standing around doing nothing wrong are fired upon by Israeli forces. I am sure the IDF will claim they were throwing molotovs and stones and rioting.
