Calls for probe into attacks on female journalists during Jerusalem march

The Coalition of Women in Journalism (CFWIJ) has called for immediate investigations and increased protections following the assault of 21 journalists during the June 5 march in Jerusalem. This urgent appeal highlights severe violations of press freedom, with journalists such as Allyson Horn and Diala Jweihan among those attacked.

In a tweet, the CFWIJ emphasized that these assaults are a blatant violation of press freedom, urging Israel to uphold its obligations to ensure the safety of journalists. The coalition's demand for action underscores the critical need for accountability and the protection of media workers in conflict zones.

"Israel must uphold its obligations to ensure journalists' safety," the CFWIJ tweeted, drawing attention to the repeated risks journalists face while covering events in volatile areas. This incident adds to a growing list of concerns about the safety of journalists worldwide, particularly in regions experiencing political and social unrest.

The international community and press freedom advocates are closely monitoring the situation, calling for swift and transparent investigations to hold those responsible accountable.
