The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) carried out 66 violations against Palestinian journalists over the past month, official sources revealed.
According to Wafa news agency, Israeli violations against journalists and media institutions have notably escalated during July in total disregard of press freedom.
Over the past month, 39 journalists were injured and 18 others were arrested while nine media institutions were targeted by the IOF.
