Al Jazeera condemns the Israeli threat towards Al Jazeera English journalist Youmna Elsayed
Al Jazeera condemns the Israeli threat towards Al Jazeera English journalist Youmna Elsayed and her family in the Gaza Strip. Her family received a threat claiming to be from Israeli forces forcing them to leave their homes, as the area where the journalist resides is currently under heavy Israeli bombardment. This vile threat comes only a few days after the indiscriminate killing of the family of Al Jazeera Arabic channel’s journalist, Wael Al-Dahdouh, who were asked to move south before being bombed. Israel's actions continue with impunity as they attempt to silence the messenger. 29 journalists have been killed since the start of the war in Gaza.
Al Jazeera strongly condemns these acts of violence and calls on international institutions to intervene and protect journalists and all innocent civilians.
