Multiple journalists have reportedly been killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza, according to Al Jazeera. One journalist who was killed in the airstrike has been identified as Saeed Al-Taweel.
As reported by Roya’s correspondent, Journalist Saeed Al-Taweel died in an Israeli bombardment on a structure in the western section of Gaza City early on Tuesday morning.
The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) struck a number of structures in the Gaza Strip, including news outlets and hospitals in their continued, ferocious onslaught.
The Roya TV offices in Gaza were one of the locations targeted, along with a medical facility that took four missile hits.
Meanwhile, a number of Palestinian journalists have died in the increasing battle in Gaza, and more are reported missing or hurt. Mohammad Jarghoun, a reporter with Smart Media, and Ibrahim Mohammad Lafi, a photographer for Ain Media, are two of the individuals who died.
Ibrahim Qanan, a reporter for the Al-Ghad channel, also sustained injuries in Khan Yunis. Nidal Al-Wahidi and Haitham Abdelwahid, two photographers, are still unaccounted for. Mohammad El-Salhi, a freelance journalist, also sadly died.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has voiced deep concern over these incidents, emphasizing the importance of protecting journalists as civilians and urging all parties to recognize their vital role in conveying accurate information during times of crisis. The conflict has claimed over 1,300 lives in just three days.
