Press Statement – May 16, 2021
Indian Women’s Press Corps, Press Association and Press Club of India strongly condemn the bombing by Israel of the building in Gaza that had offices of media houses. The building was also used for residential purpose by the journalists and their families.
There can be no justification for bombing media houses and targeting their personnel and resources. It appears as a clear attempt to prevent media houses from reporting excesses that have become a routine affair in Gaza and the occupied parts of Palestine. We condemn such attacks. We demand that targeting of mediapersons, who are working in violence-hit conflict zones, be completely stopped immediately.
