Prime Minister Omar Razzaz instructed on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, Minister of Health, Saad Jaber, and the Royal Medical Services to immediately provide the necessary health care for the Palestinian photojournalist, Moath Amarneh.

The Premier's instructions come in compliance with His Majesty King Abdullah II's directives to the cabinet earlier yesterday to follow up on Amarneh's condition.

Amarneh lost his eye after being badly injured by a metallic bullet fired by an Israeli soldier in the Surif region of the Hebron governorate, where he was covering a protest against land confiscation last Friday, November 15.
