Palestine Prisoner's Channel (Al-Asir TV)
The Committee to Project Journalists reports
The Palestine Prisoner Channel, which began broadcasting a month ago, features news coverage including reports and interviews with Palestinian prisoners on their status and condition in Israeli jails. The news broadcaster's executive director, Saher al-Qassim, said in a statement that his colleagues believed Baha Moussa's arrest stemmed from the station's specialized coverage of Palestinian prisoners. The arrest occurred days after about 2,000 Palestinian prisoners waged a month-long hunger strike for more rights in the Israeli detention system, news reports said.
