Palestinian TV reporter shot during Friday demostration

QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian TV reporter during clashes in the occupied West Bank town of Kafr Qaddum on Friday, locals said.

Anal al-Jadaa was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the leg when clashes erupted during the town's weekly Friday march. Spokesperson for a popular committee in Qalqiliya, Murad Shtewei, told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the village accompanied by bulldozers and shot rubber-coated bullets, injuring al-Jadaa, who was treated on the scene.

Separately, Israeli forces fired tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets, and stun grenades at dozens of Palestinians during the weekly Friday march in the town of Bilin near Ramallah, locals told Ma'an.

Protesters present in the demonstration raised Palestinian flags and posters of Jawaher Abu Rahmeh, who died from excessive tear gas inhalation during a protest in 2011. She died two years after another member of the family, Bassem, died after he was hit in the chest with a tear gas canister in 2009.

Residents of Kafr Qaddum and Bilin are among many in Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank that carry out weekly Friday demonstrations in opposition to the decades-long Israeli military occupation.

Israeli forces have received criticism for excessive use force as well as lethal methods of crowd control that often result in death or injury of protesters.
