With two journalists dead and at least 12 others injured, international criticism of Israeli tactics grows.
Some Palestinian journalists are accusing Israel of “deliberately” targeting them as they cover the ongoing protests at the Gaza border.
In just five short weeks, two Palestinian journalists have been killed by Israeli snipers and at least 12 others injured.
Palestinian journalist Ahmad Abu Hussein has died of his injuries, after being shot with a live round to the abdomen by an Israeli sniper on 13 April as he covered #GreatReturnMarch protests in the occupied Gaza Strip.

Israel denies it is targeting reporters. But it is facing international criticism for using heavy-handed tactics.
People in Gaza have been under Israeli blockade for years, and many are unemployed. The weeks-long protests along the Israeli security fence appear to be escalating since they began nearly a month ago.
