“As of November 2, CPJ’s investigations showed at least 36 journalists and media workers were among an estimated 10,000 killed since the war began on October 7,” the organisation said.
The Committee said journalists covering events on the ground are facing particularly high risks due to Israel’s devastating air strikes.
They have to fulfill their professional duties amid frequent disruptions in telecoms services and power outages.
