Al Jazeera Media Network denounces the Israeli attack on Anadolu Agency office in Gaza on May 4, 2019. The Network calls on all those concerned with media freedom to condemn the attacks on journalists and media institutions and to demand the continuous protection of journalists and press freedom.
The attack on Anadolu News Agencies premises in Gaza highlights the ongoing challenges faced by media institutions in reporting news from conflict zones. Al Jazeera views the targeting of journalists and media institutions as part of ongoing direct attempts to silence the messenger and censor the press.
We firmly believe people around the globe have the right to access uncensored news. Al Jazeera calls on all governments and armed groups to protect the rights of journalists reporting from conflict zones and stop targeting media institutions.
