Committee to Protect Journalists & 5 Other Groups: Biden, Promote Journalists’ Safety in Israel War in Gaza


Journalists killed around the world from 1992 to 2015.

Committee to Protect Journalists, Freedom House, Freedom of the Press Foundation, Human Rights Watch, Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) call on U.S. President Joe Biden to act immediately and decisively to promote the conditions for safe and unrestricted reporting on the hostilities in Israel, Palestine, and Lebanon.

The Israel-Gaza war has taken a severe toll on journalists since Hamas launched its unprecedented attack against Israel on October 7, and Israel declared war on the militant Palestinian group, launching military operations in the blockaded Gaza Strip. As of January 10, 79 journalists and media workers were confirmed dead, including 72 Palestinian, 4 Israeli, and 3 Lebanese.
