IDF Kills Al Jazeera Journalist — Who Was Riding with Hamas Drone Operator

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Sunday that the Al Jazeera reporter and another reporter who were killed in Sunday's airstrike in Gaza were passengers in a vehicle with the drone operator, a Hamas terrorist.

Al Jazeera's role in reporting the war has come under scrutiny for broadcasting anti-Israel propaganda and blocking Palestinians complaining about Hamas (to Al Jazeera reporters' surprise).

However, the Israeli Defense Forces countered that the journalists were killed because they accompanied Palestinian terrorists.era of israel report:

The IDF today reacted to reports that two Palestinian journalists, who worked for Al Jazeera, were killed in an Israeli airstrike in the Gaza Strip, saying they were in a car with a terrorist operative who was piloting a drone. He said that he had done so.

In response to a question on the matter, the IDF Spokesperson Unit told the Israel Times that military aircraft “identified and attacked a terrorist who was operating the aircraft in a manner that endangered IDF units.” .

Al Jazeera Said Although Israel appears to be targeting journalists, it has not explained what it was doing with the alleged Hamas terrorist and does not appear to have responded to Israel's claims as of this article's publication.

Fighting is currently raging in Khan Yunis, south of Gaza, where Israel believes Hamas leaders are hiding underground, possibly using Israeli hostages as human shields.
