In a statement by the Government Media Office in Gaza, it added, “We strongly condemn the assassination of journalists Hamza Al-Dahdouh and Mustafa Tharia. The ongoing crimes committed by the occupying army against journalists aim to intimidate and frighten them. These acts represent a failed attempt to obscure the truth and prevent media coverage.”

Furthermore, it urged journalists, unions, media organizations, human rights, and legal entities to condemn this crime and its repetition by the occupation. The statement also added, “We also urge them to pressure the occupation to stop the genocide against our unarmed people in the Gaza Strip.”

In November, Dahdouh lost his wife, son, daughter, and grandchild in an Israeli strike.
