Israeli Journalists: IDF Orders Left Us Out


New IDF policy regarding home demolitions is hurting Israeli journalists’ work, the Organization of Journalists in Israel (Itonaim) charged Tuesday. In a letter to IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, Itonaim head Yair Tirchesky said the new policy unreasonably limits journalists’ movements in Judea and Samaria.

Recently, while removing tents put up by Arab protesters in Maaleh Adumim, IDF soldiers declared the entire area a closed military zone – and did not allow Israeli reporters to enter.
