Urgent Action update: Palestinian journalist still arbitrarily held

During the night of 21/22 July 2019, Israeli authorities attempted a war crime by trying to forcibly deport Palestinian photojournalist Mustafa al-Kharouf to Jordan, where he has no citizenship or residency rights. Jordan refused his deportation and he is back in arbitrary detention in Israel. His deportation attempt came after the Israeli Supreme Court rejected his appeal to be granted family unification with his wife and child on the basis that he “has not proven his statelessness”. Mustafa al-Kharouf has a hearing in an Israeli deportation court in August for his release.

Take action.
