Palestinians just throwing stones? while the opposition shot automatic rifles? Sounds fair....

"I knew that the soldier behind me was not shooting at me, because in front of me there were stone throwers." "But you were in the line of fire!" "Yes, sure, but it's a job, you try to report from your best ability.", for those finding this scenario too incredible to be real (how sheltered are you people?)

+Aleksander Olsen because palestinians aint the ones killing journalists ;)

+Aleksander Olsen This was before journalists became targets. During the 2000 intifada they became targeted, but then by the IDF, not the palestinians. That's when it became normal to use vests and helmets as journalists.

It's not staged, he is a reporter in the middle east, there have been multiple times he have gotten between crossfires, bombings, and protests.

I don't get what he is supposed to be afraid of, he wasn't "caught in crossfire" the guy shooting was doing it because he was on camera, probably wanted to look good for his family or something.

you should never laugh, when somebody umarmed is being gunned down.. But this guy is absurt... FREE PALASTINE!

Odd Karsten Tveit is a serious and respected journalist. He is very fair and often reported on Israeli actions towards palestinians, often criticising the aggressive force used by the IDF.

I don't know if I call that brave or stupid. First, there is no reason to be standing in front of a shooter doing a news report. Second, the life of this man is more valuable than getting in a cool shot of militants firing their weapons behind him. The fuck?

The other side were throwing rocks, at something else.

probably because the guy firing the gun was behind him and the people in front were throwing stones.

@RdMrcr I'm not encouraging pin TIMguin's language, but he/she has the right to be angry. The Palestenians have lived all their lives under violence and threat, fighting for their land. They don't deserve this life. No one does.

Guns and people are not perfect, he was rather close to the shots being fired. There was a chance he could have been hit with a stray bullet from the other side.
