The news agency says it’s outraged by what it called the unprovoked attack on Mahmoud Illean. The photojournalist was covering a weekly protest in the East al-Quds neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, when he was assaulted by Israeli troops. The demonstrators are angry at an Israeli plan to evict Palestinian residents from the neighborhood. The issue was at the heart of tensions that led to Israel’s 11-day war on the Gaza Strip back in May. It saw the Israeli military raze a high-rise building that housed the offices of AP and other media in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli bombing drew widespread international condemnation.
