Statement by the Foreign Press Association [October 28, 2023]

The FPA is horrified and deeply saddened by the unspeakable loss of the family of Wael Dahdouh.

Wael Dahdouh, a long time FPA member and Gaza bureau chief for Al Jazeera, lost his wife, two children and grandson in an Israeli airstrike in the Nuseirat refugee camp.

We call on the Israeli military to immediately investigate and provide explanations for why the home where his family was sheltering was targeted. They had evacuated in southern Gaza, where Israel has ordered Gazans to flee for their safety.

Wael’s 15-year-old son Mahmoud dreamed of becoming a journalist like his father. Sham was only 7 years old. Adam was his young grandson.

No words can console such a tragedy. May they rest in peace.

May we all see better days.
