Palestinian journalist Majdi Eshtayya was injured when the settler got out of his vehicle and began shooting indiscriminately at a crowd of Palestinians during clashes that erupted with Israeli forces following a march held in solidarity with a mass Palestinian hunger strike now on its 32nd day in Israeli prisons.
