Israel attacks Palestinian journalists

Israel attacks Palestinian journalists

Ramallah, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) For the second month in a row, Israeli troops assassinated a Palestinian journalist in June and committed dozens of other violations against reporters,

a non-governmental organization denounced on Sunday.

The Committee to Support Journalists noted in a report that the military killed Gofran Warasnah (31 years old), who worked for a local radio station, on June 1.

Warasnah was shot at the entrance to the Al-Aroub camp in the south of the occupied West Bank.

The organization recorded verbal and physical attacks by Israeli security forces and settlers against Palestinian journalists working in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Deliberate assaults included racist and offensive words,

as well as kicking, beating with sticks or rifle butts, shooting with live ammunition, rubber bullets or tear gas, it said.

In May, Israeli soldiers killed journalist Shireen Abu Akleh as she was covering a military raid in the northern city of Jenin.

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

“Attacking journalists (…) and destroying buildings housing the headquarters of local and international media outlets is not new, but rather a systematic behavior in Israeli military strategy and barbaric behavior,” Wafa stressed in January.
