RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- An official Palestinian report said that Israel's press freedom violations in the occupied Palestinian lands escalated during 2012.

The report affirmed that Israel committed last year 177 violations against the freedom of the press, including three attacks that resulted in the death of three journalists.

Israel also used arrests and violence to muzzle the media and suppress freedom of opinion and expression in order to prevent the exposure of its daily crimes to the world public opinion, it added.

The report noted that director of Al-Quds radio station Mohamed Abu Eisha, 24, and the two cameramen from Al-Aqsa satellite channel Mahmoud Komi, 24, and Hossam Salama, 28, were assassinated in aerial attacks on their cars last years in Gaza.
