Another photographer has been shot by the Israeli army, leading to to claims that the Israeli Defence Force is deliberately targetting journalists to prevent them reporting on military operations in the disputed territories.
On the the 8th July photographer Mohammad Az Zanoun was documenting events around his neighbourhood of Zaitoun when he was hit in the mouth by shrapenel. He kept on working but was then shot in the stomach by Israeli soldiers.
He was taken to hospital where he remains under care.
According to the Islamic Republic News Agency nine journalists have been killed by Israeli gunfire since 2000 and in most cases the IDF have failed to account for their actions, leading to condemnation by the International federation of Journalists which represents over 500,000 journalists worldwide.
