Journalist casualties in the Israel-Gaza war — as of Dec. 5


The Israel-Gaza war has taken a severe toll on journalists since Hamas launched its unprecedented attack against Israel on Oct. 7 and Israel declared war on the militant Palestinian group, launching strikes on the blockaded Gaza Strip.

CPJ is investigating all reports of journalists and media workers killed, injured, or missing in the war, which has led to the deadliest month for journalists since CPJ began gathering data in 1992.

As of Dec. 5, CPJ’s preliminary investigations showed at least 63 journalists and media workers were among the more than 16,000 killed since the war began on Oct. 7 — with more than 15,500 Palestinian deaths in Gaza and the West Bank and 1,200 deaths in Israel. The deadliest day of the war for journalist deaths was its first day, Oct. 7, with six journalists killed; the second-deadliest day occurred on Nov. 18, with five killed.
