A Palestinian authority court in Nablus issued a three-month imprisonment sentence against a journalist identified as Abdul Rahman Zaher, for "defaming the authority."
The court's ruling was delivered on Thursday as lawyers for justice said in a statement that the verdict came after he was acquitted from charges of; "Disseminating information that incites racial strife on social media, as well as transmitting false news to cause panic."
The rights group pointed out that Zaher was being tried on three charges which are against his professional work.
The ruling was laid down against him after more than 10 sessions in court.
The Middle East Monitor reports that Zaher was arrested for 35 days at the Preventive Security Service in August 2020, during which he had suffered from difficult health conditions.
Days after his release, he was rearrested as part of a campaign against Palestinian journalists.
