Follow j. on   and 

A Palestinian journalists’ group in the West Bank has banned its members from meeting with Israeli journalists.

The penalty for such a meeting is expulsion from the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, Khaled Abu Toameh reported in the Jerusalem Post.

The ban came after Israeli and Palestinian journalists met in Oslo, Norway on May 3, World Free Press Day. They have met several times in recent months in other European countries.

Palestinian journalists who meet with their Israeli counterparts also will be fired, a senior syndicate member told the Jerusalem Post. — jta
