Israeli crackdown on Palestinian journalists

Five Palestinian journalists were wounded when Israeli occupation forces attacked them at Qalandya military checkpoint as they tried to enter Jerusalem. Ironically, the journalists were launching a campaign for freedom of movement for workers in the profession.

Medical sources said that the journalists sustained light injuries and gave their names as Nedaa Younis, Aseel al-Araj, Naela Khalil, Mofeed abu-Hasna and Omar abdul-Razeq.

The Palestinian Journalists' Union has called for all of its members to have freedom of movement in line with international conventions.
