An NBC News crew, including foreign correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin, was caught in the crossfire as Israeli soldiers fired rubber bullets and stun grenades at Palestinian protestors in East Jerusalem today.
Mohyeldin wrote on Instagram that they shouted “press” at the Israeli soldiers in English, Arabic and Hebrew: “We were trapped behind a car and had rubber bullets and stun grenades fired at us despite being marked as press and shouting to the Israeli soldiers we were press.” In the video, the crew can clearly be heard shouting “journalists, journalists!” Watch:
