The Committee to Protect Journalists, a global press freedom watchdog, has called on Israel to protect reporters covering the unrest across Israel and the Palestinian territories, as well as refrain from targeting buildings that house media outlets. 

“Israeli authorities must cease arresting and attacking journalists, who play a vital role reporting the news and bringing clarity amid chaos,” said Ignacio Miguel Delgado, the committee's Middle East and North Africa representative.
