"The Palestinian Journalist Union condemned attacks on Palestinian journalists. According to a report released by the union, 18 cases of assault against journalist were reported so far this month. The attacks were mostly carried out by the Israeli forces and others from the Palestinian security forces.

The other 7 recorded cases of violations on Palestinian journalists were implemented by both the Palestinian security forces in the West Bank as well as the Gaza Strip.

Other than using physical violence on Palestinian journalists, the Israeli occupation forces also limit the journalists' freedom of movement by setting up road blocks to prevent journalists from reaching their destination and reporting on the occupations atrocities against the Palestinian people and their lands.

Although journalists' rights are violated by the Israeli forces, journalists in Palestine are persistent in uncovering the truth and exposing wrongs committed against the Palestinian people.
