Palestinian journalists call for protest outside military court hearing for Nazzal

Palestinian journalist Omar Nazzal will be brought before Israel’s Ofer military court on Wednesday, 27 April, reported the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society. Nazzal was arrested by Israeli occupation forces at the Al-Karama crossing on Saturday, 23 April, en route to the European Federation of Journalists’ general meeting in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Nazzal is a member of the General Secretariat of the Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate. The EFJ, along with the PJS a member of the International Federation of Journalists, has called for the immediate release of Nazzal; dozens of Palestinian journalists protested on Sunday demanding his release.

Palestinian journalists will again rally outside the Ofer prison, west of Ramallah, at 10:30 am tomorrow, 27 April, protesting for the release of Nazzal to coincide with the military court convening in his case.
