The Committee to Protect Journalists said on Nov. 8 that 39 reporters and media workers have been killed since Hamas invaded Israel on Oct. 7.

The death toll includes 34 Palestinians, four Israelis and one Lebanese.

Three journalists are missing, eight are injured following assaults by Israeli police and settlers in the West Bank, and nine have been arrested.

The organization found no evidence that any of the dead, assaulted or arrested journalists were engaging in militant activity.

CPJ noted that media workers in Gaza face extremely high risks as they attempt to cover Israel’s ground assault, while facing devastating airstrikes, disputed communications and power outrages.

The Israel Defense Forces told Reuters and Agence France Press that it cannot guarantee the safety of any reporter in the Gaza Strip.

On Oct. 27, CPJ reported that 27 journalists had died in the Israel/Hamas war.
