RSF publishes report on investigation into death of Palestinian photographer Imad Abu Zahra

Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network, an organisation which combats impunity, today released the report of their joint on-site investigation into the fatal bullet injury sustained by Palestinian press photographer Imad Abu Zahra on 11 July 2002 in Jenin, in the Occupied Territories. 

Nothing happened

“Nothing happened. Soldiers opened fire, no one was hurt. Not a thing happened.” Half a dozen bullets fired by an IDF soldier pierced the windshield of a taxi in which Gideon Levy was traveling this week. A personal account. 

Israeli journalists come under fire

On August 11, Gideon Levy, of the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, his photographer, Miki Kratsman, their driver, and a representative from an international human rights organization were traveling by taxi in Tulkarem. As they approached the IDF’s District Coordination Office (DCO) at about 15 kph, they came under fire from a soldier at a lookout post about 150 meters away.
