Nablus – Ma'an – The Palestinian Media Coalition denounced the seizure of Palestinian journalist Serri Sammour from his home in Jenin on Monday.

Sammour was detained just two days after Israeli forces took female journalist Ghufran Zamil from Al-'Ein Refugee Camp, as well as Muhammad Muna from Nablus.

The coalition named six other Palestinian journalists who were in Israeli custody: Walid Khalid, Nizar Ramadan, Muhammad Al-Qeiq, Amjad Shawamra, Husam Badran, and Sami 'Asi, all from the West Bank
