Union calls on police to protect journalists reporting in Arabic

Israel’s journalists union calls on the police to protect correspondents reporting from the field in Arabic.

The letter sent to police chief Kobi Shabtai says that there have been several instances of journalists being accosted and even attacked.

“It should not be necessary to note that not every journalist reporting in Arabic is an enemy,” the letter says.

Many Israeli outlets and the state broadcaster have Arabic platforms.

“Every journalist, in every language, is entitled to full protection and the right to carry out their work safely, especially in wartime,” the letter says.
