“We witnessed a big rise in the numbers of online journalists who got killed in 2012 because most of them were local bloggers who never got trained on how to deal with the hostile environment.”
Sherif Mansour, Committee to Protect Journalists
Journalists around the world, especially those working in hostile environments like Palestine, desperately need training and support.
