Urgent Action: Jerusalemite journalist at risk of deportation

Since 22 January 2019, Palestinian photojournalist Mustafa al-Kharouf has been arbitrarily detained at Givon prison in Ramle, in central Israel. His arrest came after the Israeli Ministry of Interior Affairs denied his request for a family unification with his wife and child and, ordered his immediate deportation to Jordan. Mustafa al-Kharouf has been living in East Jerusalem, without legal status, since 1999. He is at risk of being forcibly deported at any time. Mustafa al-Kharouf is a photojournalist at Anadolu Agency and has been covering human rights violations by the Israeli forces in East Jerusalem.

Take action.
