Two Palestinian journalists have been detained by the occupation state and three have been banned from travelling. Another three have been attacked by illegal Israeli Jewish settlers.

The PJS further added that Israel targets journalists intentionally, despite them wearing vests and helmets which identify them as media personnel. This, it added, is Israel’s way of suppressing freedom of expression.
