QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian cameraman was shot in the leg on Friday by Israeli forces while covering clashes in the Qalqiliya village of Kafr Qaddum.

Bashar Nazzal, a cameraman with Palestine TV, was hit in the leg by live fire and taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The bullet reportedly shattered the bone in his leg.

Last week, an Italian was critically injured along with 11 Palestinians after Israeli forces opened live fire on a protest march in the village.

Palestinian Minister of Health Jawad Awwad told Ma'an that Italian solidarity activist Patrick Corsi, 30, was injured after Israeli forces fired several bullets at him in the stomach and chest.

Protests are held every Friday in Kafr Qaddum against Israel's closure of a main road linking the village to its nearest city, Nablus, as well as against the Israeli occupation more generally.
