Nabi Saleh journalist 'arrested in Israeli raid'

Oct. 11, 2012 8:05 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 15, 2012 12:10 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities arrested a Palestinian journalist from the Ramallah-area village of Nabi Saleh on Thursday and took him to an unknown location, locals said.

Soldiers raided the home of Mohammad Atallah al-Tamimi, 24, and destroyed its contents before arresting the journalist, who works for the Tamimi press agency, residents said.

The detainee is also active with the village's popular committee media office, they said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she had no record of the incident.

The local popular committee said in a statement that it held Israeli forces responsible for the journalist's well-being, and it condemned a series of arrests and invasions of the village.

"All these policies aim to pressure the Palestinians and kill Palestinian resistance, but we will never stop. We will keep fighting and struggling against the occupation," the statement said.

According to a Palestinian media advocacy group, Israeli forces have committed 559 violations against media freedoms in the West Bank and Gaza in the last four years.
