Number of journalists martyred in Gaza rises to 150

Tuesday 11-June-2024


The number of journalist martyrs who have been killed in the ongoing Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip rose to 150 martyrs after the martyrdom of three journalists in recent Israeli airstrikes, according to the Government Media Office (GMO) in Gaza.

The GMO said on Monday that three journalists have been killed in Gaza in the past 24 hours, bringing to the total number of journalists killed since Israel launched its genocidal war on the enclave to 150 following the martyrdom of Abdullah Al-Jamal, Ahlam Izzat Al-Ajla, and Dina Abdullah Al-Batniji.

The GMO had repeatedly warned that the Israeli occupation army deliberately targets Palestinian journalists to prevent reporting the crimes it commits in Gaza.

Statistics from the Committee to Protect Journalists, which works to investigate all reports related to killing, injuring, and missing journalists and media workers, show that this war has become the bloodiest for journalists since the committee began its work in 1992.

The International Center for Journalists announced last February that the war on Gaza witnessed the highest levels of violence against journalists in 30 years.

Since October 7, the Israeli occupation army has continued its aggression against the Gaza Strip, with US and European support, killing 37,124 Palestinians and injuring 84,712 others, in addition to the displacement of about 1.7 million people, according to UN data.
