Two Palestinian journalists killed during Israeli attack

According to International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), Sameh Al-Aryan, a Palestinian journalist of Al-Aqsa TV and photojournalist Rami Rayan of the Palestinian Media Network were killed on Wednesday in the artillery shelling by Israel of the Shojayah market Gaza.

Jim Boumelha, the IFJ president, said: "We express our anger and condemnation at the killing of these journalists, the latest victims in this ongoing cycle of intimidation, violence and murder against media workers in Palestine.

"We send our heartfelt sympathies to their family and friends and we offer our continued support and solidarity to our colleagues in the PJS and all media workers in Gaza as they continue to suffer through this appalling Israeli barrage.

"Enough is enough: the killing must end now and Israeli must be held accountable for these atrocities."
