AMMAN — The Centre for Defending the Freedom of Journalists (CDFJ) on Monday condemned the attack on journalists in Gaza by Israeli occupation forces.

A CDFJ statement said Israel targeted a building in Gaza where 15 journalists and photographers from international media institutions were stationed.

The CDFJ noted that Israel’s attempts to prevent journalists from performing their duties arise out of its fear of that they could expose the war crimes it has committed against civilians in the strip.
