Hamas security officers in Gaza harassed and attacked journalists covering recent protests. At least five journalists were attacked by police while covering peaceful protests commemorating Land Day on Wednesday (30 March). Journalists also had their equipment seized and confiscated. Later, in response to recent criticism, officials from Hamas’s Interior Ministry announced that they would no longer detain or harass journalists without formal charges.
