40 Journalists Killed, 13 Arrested in Israel-Hamas War

A Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) an independent, nonprofit organization that promotes press freedom worldwide says no less than 40 journalists were killed in the war between the Israeli forces and Palestinian militant group Hamas that broke out a month ago.

CPJ explained that as of November 10, it documented 35 Palestinian journalists, four Israelis, and one Lebanese killed in the course of their professional duty.

Besides the 40 journalists killed while carrying out their duty, eight others were injured, three missing and 13 were arrested.

According to the Committee, multiple assaults, threats, cyberattacks, censorship, and killings of family members were recorded in the ongoing war in Gaza Strip.

The bloody war which so far killed over 10,000 Palestinians and over 1,000 Israelis began on October 7, after Hamas unexpectedly attacked Israel over what they called the decades-long occupation of their land by Israel.

In a reprisal attack, Israel declared war on the armed group with a stronghold in Gaza, resulting in the bloodiest war in the last 20 years, killing mostly civilians including thousands of children.

CPJ added that the last four weeks of war became the deadliest month for journalists covering conflict since CPJ began documenting journalist fatalities in 1992.
