The Committee to Protect Journalists reports that 27 journalists have been killed since Hamas launched its attack on Israel on Oct. 7.

The death toll includes 22 Palestinian, four Israeli and a Lebanese reporter.

Another nine journalists are either missing or detained, while eight reporters have been injured in the fighting.

"CPJ emphasizes the journalists are civilians doing important work during times of crisis and must not be targeted by warring parties,” Sherif Mansour, CPJ’s Middle East and North Africa program coordinator said in a statement on Oct. 27.

He also noted that many journalists have lost family members and their homes due to the conflict.
