The Palestinian Journalists’ Union has denounced the recent attack on Rawa Abu Morshed. She was attacked by a Hamas field officer in Gaza. He beat her with a stick and verbally abused her for not wearing a hijab. She had to go to hospital to attend to her injuries.
• Lord, we pray for Rawa’s speedy recovery. We pray that the person who carried the violent attack and abuse on Rawa will be held accountable. We pray that people respect each other’s freedoms, and that such actions are not tolerated nor justified at all.
Lord, in your mercy… hear our prayers.
