An Arab human rights committee said, on Saturday, that Israel is detaining 16 Palestinian journalists and media professionals in its prisons.

The committee added: "Out of the total number of detained journalists, 8 have been sentenced to high actual sentences, 4 are subject to administrative detention, and 4 others have been detained."  She explained that "Israel has committed about 174 violations against Palestinian journalists since the beginning of this year."  She stated that "the violations were distributed between the arrest and detention of more than 20 journalists, and the use of 6 journalists as human shields during their coverage of the events."   The committee documented "issuing 8 detention extension orders and sentencing against journalists."  She said that "the number of cases of denial of coverage that it has monitored, since the beginning of 2022, has reached 62, during which more than 53 journalists and photographers were targeted and injured by live and metal bullets, poison gas bombs, and beatings with a stick."  The committee recorded "7 cases of storming and raiding the homes of journalists, and 4 cases of harassment of journalists."  And she added, "Israel also commits violations against prisoners of war, including the policy of extending administrative detention of journalists, issuing illogical or legitimate rulings in military courts, and detaining them in prisons pending trial."  She added: "In addition to deporting some of them from their areas of residence and imposing house arrest on them, and the policy of medical practice against patients among them."  And it called on "international and human rights institutions to pressure for the release of detained journalists, and to intervene to stop the policy of arresting journalists."  The committee called on the international community to "provide protection for Palestinian journalists, activate accountability mechanisms, and prosecute the perpetrators of crimes from the occupation forces."  About 4,500 Palestinian prisoners are held in Israel's prisons, including 34 women, according to Palestinian institutions concerned with prisoners' affairs.

A settler disguised in Islamic dress tried to storm the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque through the Majlis Gate on Saturday evening.  Palestinian youths confronted the settler when he tried to storm the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque disguised as Islamic dress in the Old City of Jerusalem.   Palestinians have issued calls on social media for a retreat and a pilgrimage to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque to confront the settlers' incursions, which will begin Sunday on the Hebrew "Easter" holiday.  The settlers intend to storm the mosque on the Hebrew Passover from Sunday to Thursday during the morning hours, and some of them will try to bring Easter offerings to slaughter them in its courtyards and scatter their blood at the Dome of the Rock.  Since yesterday, Friday, there have been continuous and around-the-clock attempts to bring offerings to Al-Aqsa Mosque.  Violent confrontations erupted during the dawn and morning hours of Friday (April 15th), after the occupation forces stormed the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the tribal prayer hall. As a result, the occupation forces arrested 470 Palestinians and wounded more than 150 people, including children, women and the elderly, with their bombs and bullets.
