JSC: 26 Palestinian journalists in Israeli jails

JSC: 26 journalistes palestiniens dans les prisons "israéliennes"


The Journalist Support Committee (JSC) has called upon international organizations to support Palestinian journalists by pressuring Israel to stop its persistent violations against them and release 26 of them locked up in Israeli jails.

According to a report released on Monday by JSC on the occasion of the Palestinian Prisoner Day, Israel’s security and military forces intensified their violations against Palestinian journalists and attacked more than 93 of them during the first quarter of the current year.

One of those journalists was killed by Israeli gunfire and 49 others suffered injuries in Gaza alone as they were covering recent “March of Return” protests in border areas.

Israel’s security and military apparatuses have also arrested and detained 45 journalists since the beginning of the current year and extended the detention of 13 others already in jails.

The committee also documented in its report that Israel’s forces raided 13 homes of journalists during the reporting period, while its security authorities imposed travel bans and financial penalties on 10 others.
