Palestinian journalists fear being targeted during protests

Photographer Yaser Murtaja was killed and nine other journalists have been wounded by Israeli snipers while covering the Great March of Return protests in Gaza.

Thousands of Palestinians are preparing for a third Friday of protests along the Gaza-Israel border fence.

Gaza‘s health ministry says more than 1,600 demonstrators have been shot by Israeli forces so far, 30 of them killed.

Among the dead was Yaser Murtaja, a freelance photographer.

Local journalists who are preparing to cover the latest demonstrations say they believe they are being deliberately targeted.
