Dozens of protesters suffered from temporary suffocation from canisters of tulips, which were shot at by Israeli forces during a rally in support of Palestinian journalists in the occupied West Bank on Saturday.
According to the Anadolu news agency reporter, Israeli soldiers used tear gas to disperse the protest, which was put up at the Qalandia checkpoint north of East Jerusalem.
During a protest, several journalists were reportedly killed.
The Saturday protest occurred against the backdrop of growing Israeli restrictions on Palestinian journalists in the occupied territories.
According to the non-governmental organization Palestinian Journalists, the Israeli authorities are increasingly restricting the movement of Palestinian journalists, trying to prevent them from doing their job.
For its part, the Palestinian Center for Development and Freedom of the Media (MADA) believes that since 2016, Israeli forces have carried out 833 attacks on media and personnel in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC), three Palestinians were injured by Israeli military ammunition during a protest in the city of Urif in the West Bank.
The DPRK said that dozens of protesters also suffered from choking with tear gas produced by Israeli forces during the rally.
