Allow the news media into the Gaza Strip!

We, the news media of the entire world, join the international press freedom organisation Reporters Without Borders in urging the Israeli authorities to allow our reporters back into the Gaza Strip.

Appeal by the world’s media and

Reporters Without Borders

to the Israeli authorities

 

 

In view of the scale of the military operations and the repercussion they are having throughout the world, we believe the Israeli government’s decision to exclude the press from the Gaza Strip is untenable and dangerous.

It is incomprehensible that Israel is preventing the press from providing independent coverage of events that concern us all.

There is only one solution to this situation: while taking the necessary security measures, the Israeli authorities must grant immediate access to the Gaza Strip to the media personnel who have been sent to cover this conflict.

You, international medias want to sign the appeal, please contact us at:
