Israeli right-wing extremists attacked a photojournalist who works for the Turkish Anadolu Agency on Wednesday, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

According to WAFA, photojournalist Fayez Abu Rmaileh was covering events in front of the Assaf Harofeh Hospital in Tel Aviv, where Palestinian prisoner Hisham Abu Hawwash is being treated due to a severe deterioration in his health.

Right-wing Israelis demonstrated on Wednesday in front of the Assaf Harofeh Hospital in Tel Aviv against the release of Abu Hawwash, who reached a deal yesterday with the Israeli occupation authorities to end his administrative detention and free him on February 26, after 141 days of a hunger strike to protest his detention without charge or trial.

The right-wing extremists attacked Abu Rmaileh, pushing him to the ground and beating him up. He was taken inside the hospital for treatment. No other information was provided regarding his status.

WAFA correspondent confirmed that Israeli police present at the scene did not arrest nor interrogate the attackers.

    Now imagine a headline “Muslim journalists attacks and beats up Israeli settler”.
    Can you then imagine : “Israeli police present at the scene did not arrest nor interrogate the attackers.”
