GMO condemns Israeli attack on Palestinian journalists

Friday 12-April-2024


Government media office (GMO) has condemned an Israeli attack earlier on Friday on a vehicle carrying three journalists in central Gaza’s Nuseirat refugee camp.

“We strongly condemn the ongoing targeting of journalists and media crews by Israeli occupation forces,” it said in a statement.

Israeli forces are “deliberately killing and wounding journalists in an attempt to scare, threaten, and prevent reporters from carrying out their duties, as well as to stifle the truth,” it said.

At least 140 journalists and media representatives have been killed since October 7, according to the GMO.

On Friday, three journalists were injured in an Israeli airstrike in the Nuseirat camp, in the central Gaza Strip.

Photojournalist Sami Shehadeh lost his right foot during the Israeli bombing.

The attack is not the first of its kind against Palestinian journalists since the start of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip on October 7.
