Palestinian journalist Ola Atallah was martyred in an Israeli raid that targeted the house of one of her relatives, to which she was displaced with her family, in the Al-Daraj neighborhood, east of Gaza City, bringing the number of martyred journalists since last October 7 to 82 journalists, according to the government media office in Gaza.

The government media office in the Gaza Strip announced, on Saturday, the martyrdom of Palestinian journalist Ola Atallah, in an Israeli raid that targeted the place to which she and her family were displaced in the Al-Daraj neighborhood, east of Gaza City.

A state of sadness prevailed among Palestinian media professionals on social media, who shared tweets published by Atallah, days before her martyrdom, on the “X” platform.

She wrote in her last tweet on Friday: “How many nights of terror and death must Gaza count? How many days of loss, absence, and pain must it count? How many hours of hunger, thirst, cold, illness, displacement, and estrangement must it count? How many departed, crying, and bereaved people must it count in order to The curse of arithmetic falls and the cruelty of numbers disappears.”

On Friday, the government media office in Gaza announced that the number of journalists martyred during the war had risen to 82.

With the martyrdom of Atallah, the number of Palestinian journalists martyred since the beginning of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip rises to 83 journalists.
