Palestinian Photographer Shot in Cheek Faces Prison Again
On June 30, Israeli forces invaded the Aida-area In the middle of the night. Soldiers broke into the home of Palestinian photographer Mohamed Al-Azza, assaulted him and his family and detained him. Freed on July 11 on paying a bail of 1,500 shekels, he is scheduled to appear on July 25 before an Israeli military court, which will rule on his case.
Al-Azza sustained severe injuries during his arrest on June 30 and was transferred to a hospital where he remained for three days before being sent back to prison. An Israeli military court heard charges by the Israeli security forces accusing Al-Azza as having participated in “violent and illegal” activities.
Reporters Without Borders reported that, “as a journalist, [Al-Azza] has covered demonstrations in support of detainees on hunger strikes and protests against the November 2012 offensive in Gaza.”
