Half of Palestinian Journalists Killed in Gaza War Belonged to Hamas and Islamic Jihad – Yaakov Lappin (Jerusalem Post)

Half the names that appear on a Palestinian list of journalists killed during the 2014 Gaza war actually belonged to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reported Thursday.
“Eight out of the 17 names were operatives who belonged to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, or who worked in Hamas media outlets,” the report stated.
Dr. Reuven Erlich, head of the Center, compared the operatives to Islamic State cameramen who film the beheadings of hostages. “To call them journalists is completely absurd.”
