Gaza, ALRAY - The Forum of Palestinian Journalists (FPJ) expressed on Sunday its strong condemnation of the attack by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Palestinian journalist Mebda Farhat from occupied Jalil during his coverage of the IOF’s raid on a Palestinian wedding.

Farhat was attacked by the IOF while doing his professional work, in continuation of the Israeli occupation's systematic approach of restricting Palestinian freedom of press, FPJ said in a statement.

FPJ expressed its solidarity with Farhat and called on international organizations concerned with the protection of journalists, particularly the International Federation of Journalists and Reporters Without Borders, to fulfil their duty to ensure freedom of press work and to prevent journalists from being terrorized and being deprived of doing their job, adding that the silence of international organizations encourages the occupation authorities to continue with their violations against freedom of press.

FPJ also called on Palestinian journalists to continue with their duty despite the Israeli occupation’s attempts to terrorize them, and to respond to the violations of the Israeli occupation with more effort in the fields of professional work to expose its crimes in various international forums.
