A Palestinian rights group revealed that 12 Palestinian journalists are imprisoned in Israeli jails.
The independent Palestinian Prisoners' Center for Studies described the imprisonment of Palestinian journalists as an attempt by Israel to cover up its "crimes" and keep the media away from its practices against the Palestinian people, Anadolu news agency reported.
It called on media institutions and press unions to take action to guarantee the release of the imprisoned journalists.
Around 7,000 Palestinians are imprisoned in Israeli jails, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners.
"84.8 percent of these prisoners are from the occupied West Bank," the ministry said.
