October 28, 2023

Gaza, a Palestinian enclave run by the terrorist group Hamas, has been under bombardment since Oct. 7 when Hamas gunmen burst through the Gaza border into Israel and killed some 1,400 people. Letter sent by the IDF"The IDF is targeting all Hamas military activity throughout Gaza," the IDF letter said, adding that Hamas deliberately put military operations "in the vicinity of journalists and civilians." Reuters could not verify how many other news organizations operating in Gaza had received the same letter from the IDF. Reuters and AFP said they were very concerned about the safety of journalists in Gaza. The Committee to Protect Journalists says at least 27 journalists have been killed since the war began, mostly in Gaza but also in Israel and southern Lebanon.
