    Costantini did the same for the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Gaza’s journalists are risking death every hour of every day to do whatever they can to get news to the outside world.

    Over the past five weeks, 53 journalists and media workers have been killed since 7 October in the Hamas-Israeli conflict.

    The overwhelming majority of casualties have come from Gaza where 37 journalists have died. There have also been deaths in Israel and Lebanon.

    Gaza, a Palestinian enclave run by the militant group Hamas, has been under bombardment since 7 October when Hamas gunmen burst through the Gaza border into Israel and brutally murdered an estimated 1,400 innocent civilians.

    The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is investigating all reports of journalists killed, injured, detained or missing in the war, including those hurt as hostilities spread to neighbouring Lebanon.

    On 22 November the CPJ reports:

    • 53 journalists and media workers confirmed dead: 37 Palestinian, four Israeli, and one Lebanese
    • 11 journalists reported injured
    • 3 journalists reported missing
    • 18 journalists reported arrested
