The ongoing war between Israel and Hamas has claimed the lives of at least 31 journalists, making it the deadliest conflict for media workers in the Gaza Strip since 2001.
The majority of the journalists killed were Palestinians, who worked for local news outlets or freelanced for international media. Four Israelis and one Lebanese journalist were also among the casualties.
Journalists in Gaza faced multiple threats, including Israeli airstrikes, Hamas rockets, crossfire, arrests, censorship, and harassment. Some journalists were killed while covering the clashes on the ground, others while working in their offices or homes that were targeted by Israeli bombs. Some journalists were also reported missing or detained by either side of the conflict.
