GAZA, (PIC)– A report monitoring the Israeli attacks on Palestinian journalists displayed an escalation in those attacks in the past month of January.

The Palestinian government’s information office said in its monthly report on freedom of the press in the Palestinian territories that the Israeli occupation forces escalated their assaults on journalists.

It said that 17 assaults were recorded comprising shooting, beating, and detention.

The report said that the most prominent attack was registered during the IOF soldiers’ forced evacuation of Bab El-Shams protest village to the east of occupied Jerusalem where Palestinian activists had established a tent village on lands threatened with Israeli confiscation in the holy city to build the biggest ever settlement project.
