Israel committed 168 violations against Palestinian journalists inMay

Ramallah, Jun 2 (Prensa Latina) Israeli troops committed 168 violations against Palestinian journalists in May, including the murder of the communicator Shireen Abu Akleh, an official source denounced.

The Palestinian Government Press Office warned in a report that last month saw the highest number of attacks against members of this sector since the beginning of the year, in spite of the fact that they all wear identification vests during their work. Most of the violations were concentrated in the occupied Palestinian cities of Jenin and East Jerusalem, it said.

The report documented the killing of the veteran Al-Jazeera television journalist while she was covering a new Israeli military operation in Jenin.

It also recorded attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers on more than 55 journalists, including live ammunition and rubber bullets, pepper spray and beatings with batons.

At least 16 staff members were detained in May, deported from East Jerusalem or suffered extended periods of captivity, it said.

The office also documented 11 cases of destruction of cameras and other equipment, as well as the theft of cell phones by uniformed officers in an attempt to prevent coverage of their crimes.

Israeli soldiers killed 31-year-old journalist Ghofran Warasnah yesterday at the entrance to the Al-Aroub refugee camp.

According to the official Wafa news agency, in 2021, the Israeli military committed 384 violations against employees in the sector.
