Since the beginning of the Israel-Gaza conflict, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has announced the death of 57 journalists and media workers. 11 journalists were reported as injured, 3 journalists have been reported missing and 19 journalists have been reported as being arrested. The situation for journalists in Gaza is deadly and journalists face particularly high risks as they try to cover the conflict, such as airstrikes, supply shortages, ground assault and also indirect lines of communication. Journalists are facing a number of safety issues. They are also witnessing traumatic events unfold and this can potentially significantly impact their and their families’ psychological wellbeing.
