Shooting the messenger - Photographer shot in the eye by IDF is arrested for filming their attacks on children in refugee camp

"The truth is the biggest threat to Israel and its fascist behavior."

It's worth mentioning that at the beginning of April, the 23-year-old Mohammed Al-Azzeh was seriously injured after he was shot by a rubber-coated steel bullet, fired by an Israeli soldier, which penetrated his cheek below the right eye and fractured his skull.

Israeli forces also raided the house of Mohammed's uncle, Nidal al-Azzeh, 52, and assaulted him along with two other family members. The soldiers searched the house and rummaged with its properties.

Nidal told PNN, "They were coming to take my nephew the photographer Mohammed Al-Azzeh, who was shot with a rubber-coated bullet and was treated in one of the hospitals for 20 days."

The Israeli army forces also raided the house of Mohammed's brother, and brutally beat him with their rifles. The soldiers also tried to assault his three daughters who were taking pictures for the soldiers during the assault. The soldiers were provoked and they confiscated the camera and destroyed it.

Nidal added that Mohammed was arrested few hours after the searching campaign was carried out by the Israeli forces at the camp, and that he was severely beaten on his cheek where the surgical operation took place. The soldiers sealed off the doors of Mohammed's family house, banning the family members from leaving their homes.
