A new analysis released today by CPJ (Committee to Protect Journalists) shows that more journalists have been killed in the first 10 weeks of the war than have ever been killed in a single country over an entire year.

As of December 20, 2023, at least 68 journalists and media workers have been killed since the October 7 start of the conflict. Sixty-one were Palestinian, four were Israeli, and three were Lebanese. More than half of these deaths occurred during the first month of the war, making it the deadliest single month ever documented by CPJ since it began keeping records in 1992.

“The concentration of journalists killed in the Israel-Gaza war is unparalleled in CPJ’s history and underscores how grave the situation is for press on the ground,” said CPJ President Jodie Ginsberg.
