Report Listed Hamas Terrorists as "Journalists"

(HonestReporting) Rachel O'Donoghue - A recent report by the Committee to Protect Journalists alleges that it has "documented at least 20 journalist killings by members of the Israel Defense Forces" over the last 22 years. Yet a number of those listed were affiliated with terrorist groups. Yaser Murtaja, a Palestinian press photographer who died in 2018, served for four years as an officer in Hamas' internal security services in Gaza. Cameraman Khaled Reyadh Hamad, who died in 2014, was a member of Hamas' Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades. Three employees of the Al Aqsa Media Network are highlighted in the report - Hussam Salama, Sameh al-Aryan and Yousef Abu Hussein. Run by Hamas and regularly featuring programming that encourages terror attacks on Israeli civilians, the network is an Islamist propaganda outfit, not a legitimate news outlet. Both al-Aryan and Salama were full-fledged Hamas operatives.
