Gaza, MINA – The Committee to Support Palestinian Journalists issued a new report on Wednesday documenting Israeli violations against Palestinian journalists over the past month.

The report said that 96 violations were committed by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) against Palestinian journalists, while PA forces committed 17 violations, the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported.

The report noted that July 2017 has witnessed the biggest number of violations against Palestinian journalists and media institutions.

The IOF violations will never deter journalists from exposing Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people and holy sites, the committee underlined.

The committee called for wider support for Palestinian journalists on various platforms, urging the International Federation of Journalists to provide protection for freedom of expression in the occupied Palestinian territories.(T/R04/RS5)
