CPJ: Journalist death toll climbs in Israel-Gaza war

Full Text Sharing


As of November 9, CPJ’s investigations showed at least 39 journalists and media workers were among an estimated 12,000 killed since the war began on October 7—with more than 10,600 deaths in the Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank and 1,400 in Israel. This deadly toll is coupled with harassment, detentions, and other reporting obstructions in Gaza, the West Bank, Israel, and beyond.

And now that Israeli forces have begun their ground offensive into Gaza, they have told news agencies that they cannot guarantee safety of journalists working there.

CPJ is investigating all reports of journalists and media workers killed, injured, detained or missing in the war. Its list, published here, is based on information from CPJ sources in the region and media reports. It is unclear whether all journalists were covering the conflict at the time of their deaths, but CPJ has included them in our count as we investigate their circumstances. The list is being updated regularly.
