‘Israel’ prevents jailed journalist from meeting his lawyers

Jenin (QNN)- Israeli authorities continue to hold the journalist Yazan Abu Salah from the village of Arrabeh in Jenin and denied him lawyers’ visits.

The family of Abu Salah told QNN that “the occupation is holding Yazan at Al Jalameh interrogation center and prevented his lawyer from visiting him.”
