Zionists open fire at Al Mayadeen crew vehicle in S Lebananon

TEHRAN, Apr. 12 (MNA) – On Friday, Israeli occupation forces opened fire from the "Misgav Am" outpost toward the southern Lebanese town of al-Odeisseh as Al Mayadeen's crew and several civilian vehicles were passing.

Al Mayadeen's crew, who were driving a vehicle that was marked PRESS, had evidence of bullet holes as a result of the shooting, but none were injured. 

Al Mayadeen's correspondent pointed out that the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) witnessed heavy gunfire from the Israeli position towards the al-Odeisseh road.

This is not the first time the IOF has targeted an Al Mayadeen crew.

On November 21, Al Mayadeen's correspondent, Farah Omar, and cameraman Rabih Me'mari were murdered in an Israeli airstrike on their location in Tayr Harfa, South Lebanon. An Israeli warplane fired two rockets on Farah and Rabih's location.

Farah and Rabih had just ended a live broadcast at 10 am, giving updates on the latest Israeli bombardment in South Lebanon. Farah and her colleagues were targeted soon after they wrapped up their coverage and went off air.

These two events come after the Israeli war cabinet approved on November 13 regulations that would allow the occupation government to ban and shut down Al Mayadeen Media Network in Palestine.
