Journalists in Gaza


Finally the IDF are allowing an agreed 8 journalists into Gaza. This from the IDF spokesperson:

Dear international journalists,

The Israel Defence Forces has permitted the entry of a limited embed press pool into the Gaza Strip and will be distributing footage from this pool later tonight.

Access to video material from Gaza will be via the operations office at JCS.

The Israeli court system had ruled that the Foreign Press Association could bring up to 8 journalists into Gaza; journalists have been lobbying ever since to be allowed in. Let’s hope they’re kept safe and can keep  their reports unbiased.
