The documented Israeli violations against journalists include arrests, extension of detention, direct assaults in the field, prevention from media coverage, prevention from travel, confiscation of equipment, and threats on social media.
Over September, two journalists were arrested while 11 others’ detention was extended for different period of time. Three more journalists’ trials were postponed while nine journalists were summoned for investigation during the reported period.
Meanwhile, two journalists were subjected to severe beating and torture during their detention at the hands of Israeli forces.
