In their message, the journalists, representing various British agencies and major broadcasting organizations, called for Israel to issue an official statement allowing international journalists to work in Gaza, and for the Egyptian authorities to grant international journalists access to the Rafah border crossing. The message highlighted, "There is intense global interest in the events in Gaza, and for now, the only reporting has come from journalists who were already based there."

The message also underscored the importance of prioritizing the safety of local journalists in Gaza and supporting their work alongside that of international media workers to provide comprehensive coverage of the war.

Notably, some international journalists have received invitations to participate in tours organized by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) inside Gaza, but they were prevented from speaking to Palestinians in the area.

Among the journalists signing the message were Alex Crawford from Sky News, Jeremy Bowen from the BBC, and Christiane Amanpour from CNN.
