Palestine: at least 34 journalists killed in Gaza

  • 14 Nov 2023

NUJ joins calls for an immediate investigation into the deaths of all journalists.

The National Union of Journalists has joined the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) and Palestinian Journalists Syndicate (PJS) in condemning ongoing attacks against journalists in Gaza.

At least 34 Palestinian journalists have been killed since 7 October, including several as a result of Israeli airstrikes. The IFJ has called for an immediate investigation into their killings. 

This month, the NUJ joined over 70 journalists’ organisations calling on the Israeli government to commit to the protection of journalists and abide by international humanitarian law. On 10 November, the union joined the IFJ in condemning accusations by Israeli ministers suggesting Palestinian journalists had prior knowledge of the 7 October massacre led by Hamas.

Journalists covering the war in Gaza can access safety advice from the IFJ and PJS.

The NUJ is urging all members to donate to the IFJ’s Safety Fund providing emergency assistance including the provision of essential aid to journalists in Gaza. Make a donation.
