Israeli forces fired tear gas to disperse journalists gathered at the Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem al-Quds on Saturday afternoon.

Head of the Palestinian Journalists' Syndicate Nasser Abu Bakr was among the wounded.

Abu Bakr demanded that those who commit violence against journalists be held accountable.

He said that international journalists, including members of the International Federation of Journalists and the Arab Federation of Journalists also took part in the protest.

Palestinian journalists Ahmad AbuA Hussein and Yasser Murtaja succumbed to Israeli-inflicted gunshot wounds earlier this year, while covering anti-occupation protests along the border between the besieged Gaza Strip and occupied land.

Since the beginning of the current year, he said, some 7,000 violations and assault against Palestinians by Israeli military were recorded.
