Gaza Journalist Killed In Israeli Hostage Rescue Operation

Daily Report June 10,2024

A journalist, Abdallah Aljamal, was killed in Israel’s hostage mission in Gaza. He was a contributor to the Palestine Chronicle and Qatar-based news channel Al Jazeera, and his reports were accused of being propaganda.

Breitbart News revealed that Aljamal was also a spokesman for the Hamas-run Palestinian Ministry of Labor in Gaza. The news of his demise was first revealed by Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor chairman Ramy Abdu, who claimed Israeli forces executed Aljamal.

Israeli news sources speculated that Aljamal’s family may have been holding one of the Israeli captives, Noa Argamani, but Abdu didn’t confirm this.

However, it is known that Argamani and three other hostages were being held by Palestinian families in Nuseirat, near the market, until their rescue. Abdu also confirmed that multiple homes were attacked during the raid.

According to the New York Post, before his death, Aljamal contributed to the Palestine Chronicle, a U.S.-based non-profit news outlet, reporting on Palestinian deaths in Gaza. His recent stories focused on the IDF operation in Nuseirat, where he was holding three Israeli hostages.

According to the outlet, the Palestinian Chronicle confirmed Aljamal was a contributor but made no mention that he was holding three hostages.

As reported by Fox News, Aljamal had written a column for Al Jazeera in 2019, but the Qatar-based outlet said Aljamal was never an employee.

The Jerusalem bureau chief of the now-closed Al Jazeera office, Walid Omary, denied that Aljamal worked for Al Jazeera.

“This man is not from Al Jazeera, and he did not work for Al Jazeera at all, and he is not listed as working for Al Jazeera neither now nor in the past,” Omary said. “We do not know him, and all the rumors that have been spread are empty of content and not true at all.”

According to the outlet, Omary said Al Jazeera plans to sue anyone who circulates claims that Aljamal is connected to the outlet.

Over 36,000 lives were lost since the war in Gaza began, the Gaza Ministry of Health reports, with no difference between terrorists and civilians.
