Anadolu Agency journalist injured by Israeli army fire


An Anadolu Agency photojournalist was injured by Israeli tear gas on Friday while covering mass demonstrations against Israel's occupation of Palestinian land.

Ali Jadallah, 28, was hit by a tear gas canister on his chest while covering a protest in eastern Gaza. Jadallah was sent to a nearby health center for treatment.

According to Ashraf Al-Qudra, a Gaza Health Ministry spokesman, in recent weeks more than 86 people have been injured by Israeli tear gas.

Tension has mounted in the Palestinian territories since last December, when U.S. President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
