This brings the number of journalists killed by Israel since the start of its aggression on the Gaza Strip on 7 October to 126, according to the Palestinian News Agency (WAFA).

Alaa Hassan Al-Hams, 35, worked as a journalist with Sanad Agency.

Angham Ahmed Adwan, a journalist from Libya's February Channel, and had recently returned to report from the strip.

Both were killed by Israeli bombardment targeting civilian homes in Rafah.
In early December, Alaa lost 11 members of her family in an Israeli airstrike that left her with a spinal injury. 

Alaa, who leaves a son, Abdullah, behind, was laid to rest on Tuesday morning.

Palestinian and international media outfits have repeatedly warned the Israeli army against targeting media crews and called for their protection.

Palestinian journalists have maintained that Israel deliberately targets them to stop them from reporting on its atrocities in the Gaza war.
