France24 TV suspended renowned Palestinian journalist Laila Odeh on Saturday, after opening an investigation into her use of “pro-Palestine” terminology on her personal social media accounts, the Middle East Monitor reported.

The television network accused Odeh of “incitement” and “anti-Semitism” for using the term “martyr” in reference to Palestinians killed by Israel and “1948 lands” when referring to the land of Palestine under the British Mandate before Israel’s establishment.

The channel considered that Odeh had contradicted the channel’s media policy in dealing with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Odeh, who speaks Arabic, English, Hebrew, and Russian began her career in 1993. She joined the French channel in 2007.
