Palestinian journalist killed by Israeli soldiers

Source: The Hill

A Palestinian journalist was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers at the Gaza border, the Washington Post reported.

Yasser Murtaja, 31, was one of two Palestinians who died Saturday of injuries sustained during protests at the border. The Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate said that he was one of six Palestinian journalists shot by Israeli soldiers.

Murtaja, who worked for the Gaza-based Ain Media, was shot despite wearing a vest labeling him as “PRESS.” Photos and video show demonstrators treating his injuries after he was shot in the abdomen, according to The Post.


The Israeli army said that it did not intentionally target Murtaja and that it is investigating the shooting, according to the Times of Israel.

1. That Palestinian journalist was standing 350 meters from the border fence when shot.

Found that thanks to a retweet by CNN's Jim Sciutto.
