Gaza, ALRAY - The targeting of Palestinian journalists by Israeli occupation forces and the ongoing violations of press freedom they face have prompted the Ministry of Justice to issue a call to the international community. The ministry is urging for protection to be provided to these journalists in accordance with international laws.


The Ministry of Justice stated that, according to statistics released by organizations concerned with journalists, the Israeli occupation committed 280 violations against Palestinian journalists during the current year of 2023, including 60 violations in April of last year.

 

The Ministry of Justice praised the important role played by Palestinian journalists in exposing the crimes committed by the occupation before the international public opinion. The ministry emphasized that this role continues despite the criminal violations by the occupation, including targeting journalists for killing, arrest, restriction, pursuit, seizing journalistic tools, detention, and closing down media offices.

 

It also emphasized that the Palestinian journalist's perseverance in their work and commitment to the national approach in their professional career demonstrates that the Palestinian journalist possesses the same national spirit as the resistance fighters who prove themselves on the frontlines.

 

It emphasized that this role requires protection and an end to the continuous violations of press freedom by the occupation, calling for an immediate investigation by international courts into the crimes committed by the occupation against journalists, including the assassination of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, and for the perpetrators of these crimes from the occupation forces and its leaders to be brought to trial, and not to rely on Israeli investigations and sham trials.
