Even as they Flee Danger Areas in the Gaza Strip, Journalists Are Still Reporting

(AWP) - Entering its third month, the Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip doesn’t distinguish between journalists, civilians and combatants. However, despite reporters being forced to flee danger areas alongside other displaced Palestinians, they have not abandoned their work of reporting the news.

Reporter Abdel Nasser Abou Aoun fled Khan Yunis towards Rafah in the south of the Strip, in what he describes as his fourth displacement since the beginning of the war on October 7th.

“We are in the field to deliver and complete the message, exposing the occupation and its practices. We and all our colleagues move from place to place, but we are still working, and we expose the crimes of the occupation against our people, even as we enter another day in the third month of the war,” he said.

Ibrahim Ibrahim, who works for Palestine Today TV, was reporting from al-Shifa hospital in the north of the Gaza Strip before he was forced to flee towards the central areas, then to Khan Yunis and all the way to the area near the Kuwaiti hospital in Rafah.

"We were present in al-Shifa hospital, covering and trying to expose the falsity of the occupation’s narrative and its crimes, but as a result of the continuous Israeli bombing of the hospital, we were displaced to the central regions, then to the city of Khan Yunis, until we reached the city of Rafah,” Ibrahim said.

The Government Media Office in Gaza announced on Friday that three more journalists had been killed by Israeli bombing, increasing the death toll of reporters in Gaza to 73 since the war broke out.
