Israeli attack against Al Mayadeen team denounced in Lebanon

Beirut, April 12 (Prensa Latina) The head of the Lebanese press editors' union, Joseph Al-Qasifi, today denounced the Israeli attack on the car of the team of the pan-Arab channel Al Mayadeen in the south of the nation.

The head asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to add this Israeli aggression to the record of crimes described against Lebanese media professionals.

At the same time, he demanded that the Foreign Ministry refer this attack against the information network to the United Nations Security Council.

In this context, the member of the Executive Committee of the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), Ali Youssef, emphasized that the shooting at Al Mayadeen’s vehicle is part of the brutal aggression carried out by the Zionist entity against southern Lebanon.

In a statement, he considered such hostility part of the nature of the genocide committed by Tel Aviv against journalists in Gaza and the Palestinian people.

In this regard, he indicated that Israeli aggression increases its scope due to the failure of the relevant international institutions to fulfill their duty to punish the aggressor and the support of Western powers.

In this same line of condemnation, the Editorial Board of the Egyptian news agency Index expressed its support for the Al Mayadeen team, after being the target of an Israeli attack.

According to the pan-Arab multi-platform, the Tel Aviv army opened fire from the Miskav Aam position towards the road in the city of Odaisseh while Al Mayadeen’s team was passing through the border road, and their car was hit by bullets, without causing victims.

Last November, Israeli drones murdered Al Mayadeen journalist Farah Omar, cameraman Rabih Al-Maamari and collaborator Hussein Aquil in the town of Tayr Harfa, while they were covering events in southern Lebanon.

A month earlier, the Tel Aviv army attacked media crews in the village of Alma Al Shaab, resulting in the death of Reuters photographer Issam Abdullah and injuries to other journalists.
