https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/06/palestinian-photojournalist-risk-israeli-deportation-190601111956194.htmlDuring the night of 21-22 July 2019, the Israeli authorities attempted to deport Palestinian photojournalist Mustafa al-Kharouf, from Givon Prison near the city of Ramleh in Israel to Jordan, a country where he has no residency rights. The attempted deportation of al-Kharouf may amount to forcible deportation, which is prohibited under international law. According to Mustafa al-Kharouf’s lawyer, on 22 July 2019, the Jordanian authorities refused twice to permit al-Kharouf entry into Jordan from the King Hussein and Wadi Araba crossings with Israel, following the Israeli authorities’ attempts to deport him.[1] The Israeli authorities refused to disclose the whereabouts of Mustafa al-Kharouf. On 18 July 2019, the Israeli Supreme Court rejected Mustafa al-Kharouf’s lawyer’s request to appeal the detention by the Israeli authorities and his imminent deportation to Jordan, on the basis that he has not “proven his statelessness.”
