Another journalist killed in an Israel attack

Mohammad Mahmoud Abu Shareeah, a journalist with the local Shams News agency, was seriously injured in a strike targeting his home on Saturday and succumbed to his wounds on Monday, Gaza’s government media office said in a statement.

The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said the war in Gaza has become “the deadliest for journalists” since it began documenting journalist killings worldwide in 1992.

In February, the Washington-based International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) said the Gaza war has seen the highest levels of violence against journalists in 30 years.

Israel, defying a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate cease-fire, has faced international condemnation amid its continued brutal offensive on Gaza since Oct. 7, 2023.
