The Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate yesterday condemned Israel’s shooting of photojournalist Jaffar Ishtayeh with a gas canister in his head, Shehab.ps reported.

The group also condemned the Israeli shooting of five other journalists and photographers as they covering the Great March of Return protests in Gaza.

In a statement, the Syndicate called on the international community to “take serious and active measures” to stop the suffering of Palestinian journalists caused by the “repeated Israeli violations against them”.

According to the statement, the Israeli occupation forces “intentionally” and “systematically” target Palestinian journalists.

The Israeli occupation ignores, the Syndicate said, calls and requests of Arab and international unions and the terms of all international laws and conventions related to the protection of journalists and civilians during protests and wars.
