Journalists assaulted while covering protest march
Teeti, who is also a correspondent for Al Jazeera television, said that they were covering the march by the villagers when he was attacked by three settlers. One of them tried to grab his camera, resulting in a slight wound to his right hand; another settler attacked Qusini, while an Israeli soldier attacked his assistant, Ashraf Abu Shawish, as soldiers demanded that the journalists move away from the site.
For years, settlers have been attacking Palestinians and their property and targeting journalists. In October 2008, they attacked five cameramen and photographers in the Hebron area.
