Gazan Journalist Roshdi Sarraj Killed; 29 UNRWA Workers Dead in Indiscriminate Israeli Attacks

HeadlineOct 23, 2023

On Sunday, Palestinian reporter Roshdi Sarraj was killed when an Israeli strike hit his home. Sarraj was the co-founder of the Palestinian company Ain Media. His killing comes five years after the company’s co-founder Yaser Murtaja was killed by Israeli forces while covering Gaza’s peaceful Great March of Return in 2018. At least 23 journalists have been killed since the war started on October 7.
The U.N. agency serving Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, reports at least 29 staff members have been killed in the past two weeks. Half of those were teachers.

Meanwhile, leading Palestinian human rights lawyer and activist Raji Sourani and his family are said to be safe following the Israeli bombing of his home in Gaza. Click here to see our interviews with Raji Sourani.
