The death toll among journalists covering the war between Israel and Hamas has risen to 42 – an average of at least one death a day since the conflict began on October 7th. The information is from the non-profit organization Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).
The majority of journalists – 37 – were Palestinians, according to CPJ data released this Wednesday (15). Four were Israeli and one was Lebanese, the organization added.
Al Qahera News photographer Ahmed Fatima and local radio director Yaacoub Al-Barsh are among the latest journalists killed in attacks in Gaza, the Committee said, citing several media outlets and press freedom groups .
The war between Israel and Hamas was the deadliest period for journalists since the Committee to Protect Journalists began tracking data in 1992.
“CPJ is also investigating numerous unconfirmed reports of additional journalists being killed, missing, detained, injured, or threatened, and of damage to media offices and journalists’ homes,” the nonprofit added.
