UNESCO Ramallah Office is organizing a training of security forces to better understand the role and function of journalists in democratic societies and to ensure the safety of journalists, including media workers and social media producers. This event enables security forces to be more familiar of their legal obligations to protect media professionals from violent actions by any group and to allow the free exercise of their profession, and will be more engaged in reducing impunity for attacks against journalists.
