A sit-in was held yesterday afternoon near the Israeli controlled Erez crossing in northern Gaza to protest against Israel’s ongoing siege on the Gaza Strip which has left the small region impoverished.

The Higher Committee of the Great Return March and Breaking Gaza Siege organized the protest in which hundreds of journalists and media workers from various international and domestic outlets, along with media graduates from Palestinian universities and social media activists participated.

Journalist, Samira Nassar, said:

“We are here today at this sit-in to support the rights of Palestinian journalists. Since the beginning of the Great Return March rallies in Gaza, two journalists have been intentionally murdered, 173 were injured, including ten female journalists. Nineteen journalists were detained by the Israeli occupation without any accountability – in front of TV cameras, while the world listening and witnessing” these crimes.

Ahmad Zoghbour added:

“In Gaza, journalists are banned from their most basic rights – freedom of movement. Media equipment, as well as safety equipment, are also banned from being imported.”
