Only 40 journalists remain in northern Gaza

Only 40 journalists remain in northern Gaza and they are besieged and isolated, with no means to send food or relief items to them, said Shorouk al-Assad, a member of the General Secretariat of the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate.

She has said that journalists in the besieged coastal enclave are living through unprecedented times as they are being targeted by Israeli forces.

“The most important challenge today is the survival of journalists in light of their targeting and bombardment by Israel, in addition to the killing of their families, the destruction of their neighbourhoods, and the death of their colleagues,” Al Jazeera quoted as she saying.

At least 73 media offices have been bombed since October 7, she noted.

Shorouk al-Assad said that all of Gaza’s radio stations are no longer operating due to bombardment, power outages, or the killing or displacement of staff.

Some 70 journalists have lost close family members, she said.
