Israeli occupation army attacked Journalists’ International March north of occupied Jerusalem

Saturday 17-11-2018

The Israeli occupation forces repressed the peaceful international march of journalists at Qalandia checkpoint by extensive using of sound bombs and poisonous gas on Saturday, injuring dozens of participants with suffocation.

This brutal attack on the march announced in advance as an attempt to enter Jerusalem using the international press card, in the presence and participation of the president and members of the Executive Committee of the International Federation of Journalists, is a flagrant aggression against all journalists in the world, and disrespect for all international conventions and conventions, and a flagrant violation to journalists’ right to act and to move freely in all the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem.

This attack that happened before the eyes of the world’s journalists’ leaders is an expression of the occupation arrogance and racism of Israel, its targeting of all free voices and defenders of the Palestinian right, and a miserable attempt to discourage journalists from carrying out their duties in revealing the occupation crimes.
