A Palestinian journalist working for Reuters was killed in 2008 by firing from an Israeli Army tank in disturbing circumstances. The soldier who fired the shot, who was not in a position to argue legitimate defence, could not have failed to know about the presence of a TV crew in the area at the time. The army high command promised an investigation into the circumstances of the tragedy. But in the past, Israeli Army investigations into cases of murders of journalists have not resulted in any punishment of soldiers accused of wrongdoing. Impunity remains the rule in this type of case. Elsewhere, several journalists are wounded every year with real or rubber bullets or shards from stun grenades or tear gas grenades fired indiscriminately by the Israeli Army. A Palestinian cameraman lost the use of both legs in July 2007 after he was shot at twice by an Israeli soldier, when he was already lying on the ground.
