The Forum said in a statement on Wednesday that the Israeli forces have continued their attacks against Palestinian journalists, the last of which took place last Sunday when they detained journalist Abdul Aziz Nofal, while preparing a report on settlement in Tel Rumeida in the center of al-Khalil, and held him for several hours before releasing him.

The statement stressed that the occupation authorities are pursuing a systematic policy in targeting press crews and preventing them from performing their job, especially during the coverage of the occupation and the settlers’ crimes.

Palestinian media forum expressed surprise at the ongoing silence of international organizations concerned with the affairs of journalists, such as the International Federation of Journalists and Reporters without Borders, regarding Israeli crimes against Palestinian journalists.

It considered that being silent means taking part of the responsibility for the attack on the Palestinian journalists, and stressed that it is time to start prosecuting the Israeli government before International Courts for its open war against the Palestinian journalists and the freedom of speech.
