The Israeli occupation forces arrested Al-Jazeera correspondent, Guevara Al-Budairi, while she was covering the events in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem.
Pictures obtained by Al Jazeera showed the moment of the arrest of colleague Guevara before she was assaulted and the Al Jazeera camera was destroyed, while the team was working on covering the events of Sheikh Jarrah.
Al-Budairi was covering the demonstrations in solidarity with Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood on the 54th anniversary of the setback, in which Israel occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in addition to the Gaza Strip, Golan and Sinai.
Regarding the circumstances of the incident, Walid Al-Omari, the director of Al-Jazeera office in Jerusalem, said that Guevara was detained in an occupation police station on Salah El-Din Street in Jerusalem, after she was arrested and beaten in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood and the camera with the photographer was destroyed.
He described what happened as a blatant attack with no apparent reason, as the Al-Jazeera correspondent was covering a peaceful event in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, noting that the attack was aimed at thwarting the reporting process, which was carried out by the reporter.
Al-Omari said that a lawyer was contacted to follow up on the case from the site where Al-Budairi was detained.
The Israeli occupation forces forcibly removed dozens of demonstrators, who were able to reach Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
Dozens of young men, girls, and solidarity activists were able to enter the besieged neighborhood through twisting roads, to commemorate the setback.
