Israeli Reporters Quit IFJ

IfjSix Israeli reporters renounced their membership in the International Federation of Journalists. This is in response to the IFJ censuring Israeli strikes on Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV. According to Haaretz:

IFJ members in Israel demanded that the censure be lifted immediately and asked why the IFJ did not condemn Hezbollah for firing rockets at Israeli journalists.
