Israeli forces suppress journalists' protest in Ramallah

Sept. 4, 2018 2:33 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 5, 2018 11:12 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces dispersed peaceful sit-in organized by Palestinian journalists near the Israeli Ofer military prison, west of Ramallah City in the central occupied district of Ramallah and al-Bireh.

Israeli forces suppressed the protest, organized by the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate (PJS) and the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation (PBC), using tear-gas bombs and stun grenades at journalists protesting the detention of journalist Ali Dar Ali, Palestine TV reporter, who was detained by Israeli forces on August 15.

Several journalists suffered tear-gas suffocation, while others were assaulted by Israeli soldiers.

General Supervisor of PBC, Minister Ahmad Assaf, chairman of PJS Nasser Abu Bakr and deputy chairman of the Palestinian Prisoners and Formers Prisoners' Affairs Committee, Amin Shoman, took part in the protest.

Dar Ali was detained during Israeli military raids in Ramallah on charges of alleged incitement via his social media pages; two days later, Israel extended his detention.

The Ofer military court extended Dar Ali's detention to Wednesday, September 12th.
