On average, more than one journalist has been killed every day during Israel's war on Gaza.

The Committee to Protect Journalists reports that nearly 40 have now lost their lives at the hands of the Israeli forces since the war began.
They've been killed by air strikes, artillery shelling or by being shot.

According to the CPJ, Israel's war on Gaza has become the worst for those covering conflicts since it began documenting deaths in the early 1990s.

The International Federation of Journalists condemns the killings and continued attacks on journalists, and is calling for an immediate investigation.

Reporters Without Borders recently concluded Israeli forces deliberately targeted and killed a Reuters videographer in southern Lebanon.

As non-combatants, journalists are protected under Article 79 of the Geneva Convention.
And all parties to a conflict have a duty to protect them.

Tim Dawson is Deputy Secretary General of the International Federation of Journalists. It represents 180 journalists' unions and associations around the world and has around 600,000 members. He joins us from London to talk more about this.
