The Israeli occupation authorities have been seizing the press pass, laptop, and money owned by the Palestinian journalist Khaled Maali for the fourth month, in a flagrant breach of international law.

Maali, from the northern West Bank province of Salfit, told the PIC that Salem military court ruled that he be released on condition that he shell out a 7,000-shekel bail and hand over his personal laptop and private international press card.

Maali added that at least 15 Palestinian journalists have been locked up in Israeli occupation jails in a barefaced infringement of their right to the freedom of expression granted by the international law.

Palestinian journalists have been subjected to tough crackdowns and arbitrary abduction sweeps by the Israeli occupation forces on account of their involvement in media campaigns exposing Israeli terrorism against the Palestinian people across the occupied territories.
