Some 310 violations have been committed by Israeli forces against journalists since the start of the year, the Committee for the Support of Journalists revealed in a report.

The report, which covers the period between January 1 to June 30, states that excessive force was used against media personnel in violation of all international and human rights conventions which guarantee the freedom of press.

Journalists were arrested, detained and prevented from entering areas to provide coverage, the organization said, while many had their equipment damaged or confiscated. Others were barred from travel or had their homes raided, while media outlets were shut down or threatened.
