Quds Press International News Agency has expressed its gravest concern over the fate of its West Bank correspondent, Muhammad Anwar Muna, after he was detained by the Israeli occupation forces yesterday.

On Tuesday, Israeli forces raided the home of Mr Muna in the eastern suburb of Nablus and arrested him.

A release from Quds Press condemned what it described as an ‘outrageous’ and unjustified act of aggression against the freedom of expression and the intimidation of the journalist’s family. The Agency’s statement added that it held the Israeli authorities responsible for the safety and wellbeing of its journalist, who it says is renowned for his professionalism.  It called for his immediate release.
