The crime of attacking journalists by Israel is not a new practice, during the war on Gaza in 2008-2009 and in November 2012, several attacks and deaths of journalists were documented.

Since the beginning of the assault, on July 7th, Palestinian journalists and media institutions were massively targeted by Israeli shelling, 8 journalists* were killed and more than a dozen injured, over 15 media headquarters, media vehicles and houses of Journalists were shelled. If that is not a deliberate attack on media, then what is?
