A total of 122 journalists have been killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza since October 7, according to WAFA agency.

WAFA said that the Palestine TV journalist Issam Al-Lulu was killed in an Israeli attack on the town of Al-Zawaida, which also led to the killing of his wife and two children.

It added that another journalist, Mohammad Abdel Fattah Atallah, a correspondent for Al-Resala Press Agency, was also martyred along with his family.

Earlier, CPJ said that journalists and media crews in Gaza face particularly high risks as they try to cover the conflict during the Israeli ground assault, including devastating Israeli airstrikes, disrupted communications, supply shortages, and extensive power outages.

According to Sherif Mansour, CPJ’s Middle East and North Africa program coordinator, journalists are civilians doing important work during times of crisis and must not be targeted by warring parties.
