BEIRUT: Information Minister Walid Daouk condemned the shooting at several journalists Wednesday in the latest round of violence to overwhelm Tripoli.

The vehicle of the English-language Al-Jazeera TV crew came under fire in Tripoli earlier in the day. In a statement, Daouk called for “considering journalists neutral parties when they are working in conflict settings, to protect their lives and facilitate their work in covering the incidents [in Tripoli].”

He said that targeting journalists “will not hinder media professionals from conveying the truth.” He also urged the security forces “to work to protect all media professionals while they are working,” reiterating his call that “conflicting parties should consider journalists neutral during their battles.”
