Israeli authorities release Palestinian photojournalist

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities released, late Tuesday, a Palestinian photojournalist, Bahaa Nasr, who was detained for several hours earlier during the day.

Locals said that the Israeli authorities accused Bahaa Nasr, photojournalist for the Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa News Agency, of attempting to take an Israeli soldier’s weapon during confrontations, however, other photographers present proved through their recordings that these charges were untrue.

Sources confirmed that Nasr denied the pressed charges and was released from an Israeli detention center several hours later.

Israeli forces detained Nasr as he was covering a story taking place in Ras Karkar village, in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah, in which Israeli forces stormed the village and razed Palestinian-owned lands.

Confrontations broke out between residents of the village and Israeli forces resulting in Israeli forces assaulting several of them, including Nasr, whose head and body were repeatedly beaten before he was detained.
