04 August, 19

The deliberate targeting of Palestinian journalists covering the Great Return March protests by Israeli occupation forces is a crime added to a long history of crimes against Palestinian media, Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qasem said.

Qasem’s remarks came after two the Israeli occupation had shot two Palestinian journalists while covering the Gaza protests by Israeli occupation forces on Friday.

In a press release, Qasem denounced the Israeli occupation’s crimes against Palestinian journalists as a “failed attempt to suppress the truth of its aggression and racism,” and promote its fabricated narrative.

The Hamas spokesperson stressed that this Israeli practice violates all international and humanitarian norms and conventions, calling for prosecuting the Israeli leaders for their crimes against the Palestinian people.
