Israel postpones hearing for Hebron journalist Mosaab Shawer


HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israel’s military court Ofer extended the detention of a 22-year-old journalist from Hebron on Wednesday.

In a statement, the the detainees’ center representing the southern West Bank city said that the court postponed the session considering Mosaab Shawer’s arrest until May 5.

The center said Shawer’s work at a Hebron radio station focused on prisoners issues. He was arrested on Feb. 25 from his home without any prior warning, the center said.

In Ramallah, meanwhile, the head of Mada, a Palestinian media freedoms group, told reporters that the past year witnessed an increase of some 65 percent in violations against Palestinian journalists.

Ghazi Hanania recounted 164 Israeli violations in 2012 compared to 100 in 2011.
