GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian journalist who was injured when Israel shelled his Shujaiyya home succumbed to his wounds on Thursday, the ninth journalist to be killed by Israeli forces since the assault on Gaza began three weeks ago.

Muhammad Daher, who worked for al-Resalah newspaper, was injured in the shelling while a number of his family members were killed.

The target of the attack was unclear, but Israel has repeatedly destroyed entire apartment buildings in order to kill wanted individuals.

The Israeli assault has taken a high toll on Palestinian journalists, as seemingly haphazard shelling of residential and commercial areas have killed many, including 17 shoppers in a Shujaiyya market and 16 internally displaced people at a UN school on Wednesday.

Photojournalists Rami Rayan and Sameh al-Aryan, who worked with al-Aqsa TV, were killed Wednesday during the shelling of al-Bastat market in Shujaiyya.

Journalist Ahed Zaqqut, who focused on sports media for several agencies, was also killed Wednesday.

Journalists Najlaa Mahmoud al-Hajj, Abd al-Rahman Ziyad Abu Hayin, Izzat Dhuheir, Bahad al-Din Gharib, and photojournalist Khalid Hamad were also killed in earlier strikes on the Gaza Strip.

Killed by who? By Hamas, most likely. Foreign journalists are now coming out of Gaza and reporting how Hamas threatened them. They are also reporting how Hamas is indeed using UNRWA facilities as military sites, as well as schools, hospitals and mosques. Al Aqsa TV is the Hamas propaganda station - it is not a news organization. Maan reporters all know that Hamas does not believe in freedom of the press, since they closed down Maan in Gaza earlier this year and arrested its reporters.

Deliberately targeting journalists in order to prevent or inhibit the flow of information suggests intent to keep war crimes from being exposed and is a crime itself. I highly resent my tax-payer dollars being used for the occupiers war crimes.

Cohen is another example of the Israeli war machine - lie lie and then lie. It is beyond doubt they were hit by American made weapons given to NOT HAMAS??? It is sad how Israelis believe there own lies!!! Maybe this will be there downfall

War reporting is a dangerous job. When Israel invents a missile that can recognize "PRESS" on a flak vest or the size of a child, it will deploy it. In the meantime, reporters in a war zone take very big gambles.

The market was closed. Why were their shoppers? That seems disingenuous. The more I try to side with the Palestinians, and the more I research, the harder it becomes. Mandela, Tutu, and the great leaders of the REAL apartheid didn't use human shields and they won. Seems like Palestinians might do better with better leaders.

#7 Your bias inhibits your ability to find the truth, otherwise you would have found it already. In reality, you are not interested in the truth, you are interested in identifying things for which you can neatly develop your own little narrative so that it fits into your pre-packaged ideologies.
