Al Jazeera journalist Samer Abudaqa killed in Israeli attack

After being injured in an Israeli drone attack earlier today, Al Jazeera Arabic journalist Samer Abudaqa died from his wounds, the news network has announced.

Ambulances had attempted to reach him but were unable to due to the roads being blocked by the debris from an Israeli bombing, media outlets reported.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share the devastating news of the loss of our dedicated Al Jazeera cameraman Samer Abu Dakka during the recent coverage in Gaza,” Mohamed Moawad, Al Jazeera’s managing editor, announced on the social media platform X.

“His unwavering commitment to truth and storytelling has left an indelible mark on our team. Samer, whose lens captured the raw and unfiltered reality of life in Gaza, was not just a skilled professional but a compassionate soul who understood the power of visual storytelling.”

Al Jazeera’s Gaza bureau chief and veteran journalist Wael al-Dahdouh was wounded by the same strike on Friday.
