Reporting Gaza: the challenge of being a journalist and a resident | BBC News

In Gaza, Palestinian journalists document the war as they live it on a daily basis. In this BBC World Service film, we hear the story of BBC Arabic’s reporter in Gaza, Adnan El-Bursh who found himself reporting the news, as he was living through it.

Israel launched a military campaign in response to Hamas’ cross-border attack on southern Israel on 7 October, during which about 1,200 people were killed and 253 others were taken hostage.

More than 34,480 people have been killed in Gaza since then, according to the territory’s Hamas-run health ministry.

A deal agreed in November saw Hamas release 105 of the hostages in return for a week-long ceasefire and some 240 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
