Journalists Injured In Israeli Attack On Refugee Camp In Central Gaza Strip

12.04.2024 15:27

Attack targets several journalists, including from Türkiye’s public broadcaster TRT Arabic.

Several journalists were injured in an Israeli attack on the Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza Strip on Friday.

Medical sources told Anadolu that among the injured was photojournalist Sami Shehadeh whose right foot was amputated and he also sustained various wounds throughout his body.

A correspondent for the Türkiye's public broadcaster TRT Arabic was slightly injured in the Israeli attack, said the sources at the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital.

They said that Muhammad Al-Sawalhi, another journalist, was also injured after shrapnel hit his right hand in another Israeli artillery shelling in the same area.

This is not the first time that the Israeli army has targeted journalists in Gaza during its war that has been ongoing for more than half a year.

At least 140 journalists have been killed as a result of Israeli attacks since Oct. 7, according to data from the Gaza government media office.

Since Thursday morning, the Nuseirat camp has been witnessing intense Israeli artillery and air strikes, coinciding with the Israeli army's announcement of a military operation in areas north of the camp in the central Gaza Strip.

Israel has waged a military offensive on the Gaza Strip since an Oct. 7 cross-border attack by the Palestinian group Hamas which killed around 1,200 people.

More than 33,600 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since the war began.

It has also imposed a crippling blockade on the seaside enclave, leaving its population, particularly residents of northern Gaza, on the verge of starvation.

The war has pushed 85% of Gaza's population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water and medicine, while much of the enclave's infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed.

Israel stands accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which has urged it to do more to prevent famine in Gaza.
