The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate in the Gaza Strip on Saturday called for the release of Palestinian journalists who have been arrested by Palestinian Authority security forces in the West Bank.

The syndicate warned that freedom of expression had "seriously deteriorated" in the West Bank, especially in the past few weeks.

It pointed out that PA security forces arrested five Palestinian journalists in the past month - two of whom remain in prison.
