Urgent Gaza Appeal

Journalists were among the

key players in the dramatic events of May 31st when Israeli soldiers

intercepted a flotilla of ships bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza. Nine people died in the assault on

these ships including one journalist.


Up to 100 reporters and camera staff were

among the passengers covering the event and most of them were detained by

Israeli officials when the ships docked. Many of them had their equipment


The IFJ, with the help of its

Israeli affiliate the National Federation of Israeli Journalists (NFIJ),

is providing help to journalists to try to recover their lost materials

and equipment.
