Eleven journalists have been killed and over 20 injured since the start of the Israeli airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip, a Palestinian journalists’ group said in a new report.

According to the report released Sunday by the ‘Freedom Committee’, affiliated with the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, 11 Palestinian journalists have been documented as killed by Israeli airstrikes since October 7.

A statement by the group provided “documentation of the targeting of journalists” from the start of the war on the Gaza Strip until the evening of October 15. It also decried “the violent escalation in the targeting of Palestinian journalists”.

Following the announcement of the complete or partial shelling of approximately 20 homes belonging to journalists, the Israeli army escalated by targeting the residences of several journalists directly, according to the report. This led to injuries and the tragic loss of family members.

In addition, the report said that approximately 50 headquarters and media institutions were destroyed as a result of shelling, including Al-Aqsa Media Network, Ma’an News Agency, Al-Quds newspaper, Baladna Radio, Zaman Radio, Al-Quran Radio, the Al-Jazeera Network office, Palestine TV and the AFP offices.

The report also documented several attacks on Palestinian journalists in the occupied West Bank, including detention, blocking of coverage, confiscation, and destruction of equipment by Israeli forces.
