Palestinians are experiencing digital Apartheid. It has been a frequent act by the Israeli regime to attack Palestinian media either by destroying their buildings, physically assaulting journalists, or attacking them in columns and opinion pieces. All while Palestinian media are seldom granted the opportunity to have their pieces published on mainstream media about the events playing out in their homeland. Last week a 15 story building housing offices of Associated Press and Al Jazeera was destroyed by the Israeli forces. Palestinian journalists have spoken out against these ongoing attacks against them. But how can this unjust behaviour be tackled?
