Israeli authorities committed eight violations against Palestinian journalists, in September, a WAFA report said today, according to Days of Palestine.
It said, in its monthly report on Israeli treatment of Palestinian journalists and media, that six journalists were injured from rubber-coated metal bullets, tear gas inhalation or beatings by Israeli soldiers, while covering events in the occupied Palestinian territories.
In addition, Wedad Barghouthi, a lecturer of media at Birzeit University, was abducted by Israeli forces who raided her home in the village of Kobar, near Ramallah, on September 1.
On September 13, Israeli authorities banned journalist Majdoulin Hassouna, who works with the Turkish TRT channel, from travelling at Allenby Border Crossing, on the Palestine-Jordan border, while she was on her way back to Turkey, following a visit to her family in the West Bank, the report said.
