36 journalists killed since Palestine-Israel conflict escalation


At least 36 journalists and media workers have been killed since the beginning of the Palestine-Israel conflict escalation, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said in a statement.

“As of November 3, CPJ’s preliminary investigations showed at least 36 journalists and media workers were among an estimated 10,000 killed since the war began on October 7—with more than 9,000 Palestinian deaths in Gaza and the West Bank, and 1,400 deaths in Israel,” the CPJ said.

It said there had been 31 Palestinians among those killed.

“As of November 3: 36 journalists and media workers were confirmed dead: 31 Palestinian, 4 Israeli, and 1 Lebanese; 8 journalists were reported injured; 3 journalists were reported missing; 8 journalists were reported arrested.

On October 7, Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip and breached the border, killing and abducting people in neighboring Israeli communities. Israel launched retaliatory strikes and ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food, and fuel.

On October 27, Israel launched a large-scale ground incursion inside the Gaza Strip to eliminate Hamas fighters and rescue the hostages. The escalation of the conflict has resulted in the deaths of around 1,400 people in Israel and over 9,000 in the Gaza Strip.
