Journalists Murdered by Israeli Occupational Forces During the War on Gaza 

Journalism is in the process of being eradicated in the Gaza Strip as a result of Israel’s refusal to heed calls to protect media personnel. The situation is dire for Palestinian journalists trapped in the enclave, where ten have been killed in the past three days, bringing the total media death toll in Gaza since the start of the war to 86. 

Gaza's lament resounds, ink stifled in despair,
86 journalists fallen, a grievous share.
In the grip of Israeli occupation's test,
Pens laid to rest, truth suppressed.

Locked gates of Rafah, a plea to the world,
Break the silence, let truth be unfurled.
Occupation's weight on storytelling quills,
A century's sorrow, the journalistic hills.

International eyes denied, entry's plea,
Gaza's stories veiled, yearning to be free.
No refuge, no escape, in this perilous dance,
Reporters seeking safety, a fleeting chance.

A plea for protection in occupation's grasp,
Journalism strives amidst a tumultuous rasp.
Beneath the Palestinian sky, resilience thrives,
Global voice, break the silence wide.
