Ongoing violations against Palestinian journalists condemned by Forum

The Palestinian Journalists’ Forum has condemned the escalation of Israeli crimes and violations against Palestinian journalists and media foundations, contrary to the most basic international and legal norms and conventions that guarantee the freedom of press. In a statement the Forum stressed on the necessity for the immediate release of all detained journalists and to end the unfair judgments against them, as well as the need to do their work freely, as a right guaranteed legally and internationally to them.

The forum called on the International Federation of Journalists and international human rights organizations operating in the field of media work, to put pressure on the Israeli occupation to immediately release all detained journalists under frail and false pretexts.
