Israeli forces have killed another Palestinian journalist in an airstrike in the Gaza Strip, taking the number of journalists killed in the besieged territory since October to 151.

In an announcement on Monday, the Gaza media office said the regime’s forces killed Mahmoud Qassem, a photojournalist who was working with the local Palestine daily. It did not provide any information on the location and the date of the killing.

UN experts have previously warned about “the extraordinarily high numbers of journalists and media workers who have been killed, attacked, injured and detained in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.”

By killing media workers, they said, Israeli forces were “blatantly disregarding international law.”

“We condemn all killings, threats and attacks on journalists and call on all parties to the conflict to protect them.”

UN experts also called on the regime’s forces and authorities “to allow journalists to enter Gaza and protect the safety of all journalists in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.”

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, media workers are being killed in the regime’s bombardment of the Palestinian territory at a rate with no parallel in modern history.
