An Israeli tank strike killed a Reuters journalist and injured six others in Lebanon during coverage of the Israel-Hamas war.

Reuters’ investigation pointed to the tank crew as responsible, with evidence identifying shrapnel as part of a tank round.

The Israel Defense Forces denied targeting journalists, while Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International called for an investigation, labeling the incident a potential war crime. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)

“The evidence we now have, and have published today, is that an Israeli tank crew killed our colleague Issam Abdallah,” Alessandra Galloni, the editor-in-chief of Reuters, said in a statement.

“We condemn Issam’s killing and we call on Israel to explain how this could have happened and to hold to account those responsible for his death and the wounding of our colleagues.”

“Issam was a brilliant and passionate journalist who was much loved in this newsroom,” added Galloni.

“This is not the first time that Israeli forces have apparently deliberately attacked journalists, with deadly and devastating results,” Ramzi Kaiss, the group’s Lebanon researcher claimed.

Amnesty International’s deputy regional director for the Middle East and North Africa, Aya Majzoub, said it had uncovered “chilling evidence pointing to an attack on a group of international journalists who were carrying out their work by reporting on hostilities.”

Galloni added, “At Reuters we report the news of the world with accuracy, integrity, independence and freedom from bias,” she said. “It is critically important that our journalists are able to do so, safely.”

The Committee to Protect Journalists reported numerous casualties among journalists during the conflict.

Reuters emphasized the need to protect journalists during such events.
