Amid fierce Israeli crackdown on Palestinians’ freedom of expression, Israeli occupation authorities prosecuted two Palestinians over Facebook posts.

Israeli occupation authorities issued a list of charges, including “Facebook incitement” against the Palestinian journalist Mohamed Batroukh from Jerusalem.

Jerusalem-based human rights group Wadi al-Hilweh Information Centre said that this is a “clear and flagrant violation” of rights to impart information and free speech.

Batroukh was kidnapped by the Israeli occupation forces during a night raid on March 7, the Palestinian news agency Safa said.

Meanwhile, an Israeli judge sentenced Walid Rajabi to 10 months of actual imprisonment and a suspended probation sentence of seven months for three years on charges of incitement on Facebook.
