[Tuesday Evening, February 18, 2014] The Israeli Police in occupied Jerusalem kidnapped a Palestinian photojournalist, identified as Mohammad Abed-Rabbo, over a Facebook post and picture he shared. Abed Rabbo was moved to the al-Maskobiyya interrogation facility, west of Jerusalem, and was interrogated for more than one hour.
The interrogators told him he was under interrogation for publishing a picture of Jerusalem City Council Head, Nir Barkat, describing him as the â€śmayor of occupied Jerusalemâ€ť.
Abed-Rabbo told the Panet Agency that the interrogators described what he wrote as â€śincitementâ€ť.
His Facebook post came when he was commenting on a visit by Barkat to Sur Baher Palestinian town, in occupied Jerusalem, during the opening ceremony of a public center.
He said that his arrest and interrogation are part of Israelâ€™s ongoing violations against Palestinian journalists and different Palestinian media outlets in occupied Palestine, including the occupied Palestinian city of Jerusalem.
â€śThis type of harassment and intimidation will not deter the journalists from performing their dutiesâ€ť, he said. â€śThey cannot silence us, they cannot blind our cameras that expose their crimes against our people.â€ť
