5 March 2015

Officials in our Embassy in Tel Aviv have registered our concerns with the Israel Defence Forces about the reported wounding of Palestinian photo-journalists. Protection of the freedom of the media is an important attribute of human rights. We will continue to raise individual cases in which Palestinian journalists have been shot with the Israeli authorities.
