The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) issued a decision expelling Israel from the IFJ.
14 countries out of 17 voted in favor of the decision with 3 abstaining during the meeting of the IFJ which had taken place in Brussels on 28 and 29 of June.
The move is yet another gesture showing the international organizations’ rejection of the Israeli entity’s practices against the Palestinians and Arabs.
The IFJ in consensus decided also to refuse applications for membership submitted by Syrian self-proclaimed journalists under the name of the “The Syrian Opposition Journalists Federation”.
The IFJ was founded in 1926 and re-founded in 1946 and 1952. It represents more than 600,000 journalists working in 140 countries worldwide.
