MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 13th October, 2020) The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has condemned the ongoing attacks on press freedoms in Yemen, after a report by the Yemeni Journalists' Syndicate said that 22 press freedom violations occurred in the country from July to September.
"This latest report proves that press freedom remains under serious threat in Yemen and we find these attacks totally intolerable. It is particularly worrisome that the de facto government in Sana continues to lead the war against the media," IFJ General Secretary Anthony Bellanger said in a press release on Tuesday.
"We call on the warring parties to release all imprisoned journalists, drop the death sentences against journalists and provide for an environment where journalistic activity can be exercised without fear," the IFJ general secretary said.
