GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Ma'an Network began a five-day training course for Palestinian journalists in Gaza on Sunday, the head of Ma'an's Gaza office said.
Imad Eid said in an opening brief that the main goal of the course was to train journalists how to cover conflict-sensitive issues.
He said the course would also focus on teaching reporters methods for working in conflict zones without endangering their lives.
The course -- funded by UNESCO -- is entitled: "Promoting Quality Journalism on Conflict-Sensitive Reporting for Media Workers in Gaza."
Twenty-two Palestinian reporters and cameramen, who work for several local and international media outlets, are taking part in the course.
Three similar training courses have been held in Gaza in the past.
