60 Palestinian journalists killed in Israel war on Gaza

Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor provided the information in a press statement released through Palestinian media on Sunday.

According to the statement, the fatalities equaled “the highest-ever number of journalists killed in wars and conflicts in modern history.”

The group attributed the regime’s brutality towards journalists to its efforts to impose “a real and comprehensive media blackout” during the war.

The Israeli regime started the war on Gaza after the territory’s Palestinian resistance groups carried out the surprise Operation al-Aqsa Storm against the occupied territories on October 7 in response to the regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.

Gaza’s Health Ministry says at least 13,000 Palestinians, including more than 5,000 children, have so far been killed, and about 30,000 people have been injured.

The killing spree targeting journalists, Euro-Med Monitor said, came amid unfounded allegations by some Israeli officials that Palestinian press crews had prior knowledge of the October 7 operation.

According to the group, “Israel purposefully [has] left no safe haven for journalists in the Gaza Strip. Journalists were targeted even when they were wearing press jackets in the field, in press tents erected for media coverage next to hospitals, or even in their family homes.”

The latest of the fatalities were caused on Saturday, when the regime’s forces killed two journalists in an airstrike targeting Gaza’s Bureij refugee camp.
