21 November 2012 — PCHR – Palestinian Centre for Human Rights PRESS RELEASE
Time: 10:30 GMT
Ref: 135/2012 

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) strongly condemns the killing of 3 journalists in two separate airstrikes on Tuesday, 20 November 2012, in Gaza City and the central Gaza Strip town of Deir al-Balah.

Journalists and media professionals, like civilian persons, enjoy special protection in time of war under international humanitarian law.
