With the mass increase of daily news from both traditional and new media outlets, deciphering important information and deciding what to believe and what to discard is getting more and more challenging. 

With the right reporters and activists however, especially when it comes to matters as sensitive as the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, readers are guaranteed to get the truth.

Here are 5 Palestinian activists you should follow to stay up-to-date on the current affairs:

1. Issa Amro

Issa Amro, Palestinian activist based in Hebron, West Bank, is the founder and director of Youth Against Settlements, a group he founded in 2008 that urges young Palestinians to protest non-violently against the Israeli occupation. 

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights declared him the Human Rights Defender of the Year in Palestine in 2010

Today, he is actively fighting for the release of Ahed Tamimi while sharing updates on issues regarding the Palestinian occupation as well as U.S. politics.

2. Amani Al Khatahtbeh

Amani Al Khatahtbeh, a Muslim-American of Jordanian-Palestinian descent, is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Muslim Girl, a bi-monthly lifestyle online magazine related to young Muslim women. 

In January 2018, Al Khatahtbeh declined Revlon's "Changemaker Award" after the company declared Israeli actress and outspoken IDF supporter, Gal Gadotas their ambassador. 

She's quite active on Twitter, where she voices her opinions on feminism, U.S. politics, Palestine, and the intersection of all three to her 30K followers.

3. Manal Tamimi

While many activists and reporters are actively trying to free Ahed Tamimi, one local activist, namely her aunt, is updating the world with every word she gets one tweet at a time

The prominent Palestinian activist from Nabi Saleh was herself detained in December for organizing a protest outside Ofer prison where Ahed is being held. 

On January 10, Manal's son, Mohammad, was arrested during a raid on the family's home at 3 am. The Israeli occupation court is still interrogating Mohammad Tamimi to date in Baitah Tekva, where he remains in solitary confinement.

4. Omar Ghraieb

Ghraieb, who is a freelance journalist and a social media manager, has spent years breaking exclusive news on Twitter and teaming up with multiple humanitarian organizations such as Action Against Hunger and Doctors Without Borders

He routinely blogs at Gaza Times and updates his 37K followers on the latest news in Gaza and the rest of Palestine's occupied territory. 

5. Omar Baddar

While it's unclear whether Baddar is a Palestinian national or not, he certainly has a loud and clear voice when it comes to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. 

Baddar, who describes himself as a "political analyst, digital producer, and human rights advocate," is based in Washington and tweets his political views on the U.S. and the Middle East. 

He has repeatedly appeared on BBC, Al Jazeera, and Sky News amongst other news outlets, and contributes to multiple platforms including Salon and The Huffington Post.
