Journalist loses foot in IDF attack

Several journalists, including a CNN stringer, were injured in an attack on a refugee camp in central Gaza, amid mounting concerns about media workers being killed and injured while covering Israel’s military campaign.

Israeli tanks launched a “targeted attack” where several journalists were working at Nuseirat camp, including a cameraman and correspondent working for TRT Arabi, according to a statement by the Jerusalem bureau chief for Turkish state broadcaster TRT. One journalist sustained wounds that left him in critical condition.

TRT cameraman Sami Shehada lost a leg, while the correspondent, Sami Barhoum, suffered minor injuries, the statement said.“

This incident, occurring amidst ongoing conflict coverage, highlights the severe risks journalists face in conflict zones. This deliberate attack against media professionals, marked clearly with “PRESS” on their jackets, is part of a broader pattern of violence that has claimed the lives of 140 journalists since the conflict began,” TRT’s statement added.
