|BRUSSELS, (PIC)-- The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) has condemned the killing of Palestinian cameraman Khaled Hamad on Sunday.|
The Brussels-based Federation quoted the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate (PJS) as saying that Hamad, 25, who worked for the Continue TV production company, was shot dead while covering Israeli military operations in the Shujaia neighborhood in Gaza City.
It noted in a statement on Monday that the Israeli forces, according to the PJS, also bombarded the house of journalist Mahmoud Al-Louh, who works for Al-Ashab radio station, while cameraman Kareem Tartouri was reportedly injured in another Israeli attack.
“We send our respects to the family, friends and colleagues of Khaled Hamad who was killed while doing his job to ensure that the truth is told,” said IFJ President Jim Boumelha.
"What we are seeing in Gaza is both shocking and horrific. Journalists must be allowed to report what is happening and not be targeted by the army for their work. We call on Israel to respect the rights and freedoms of Palestinian media."
