The 65-year-old father of Al Jazeera journalist Anas al-Sharif is killed in an Israeli airstrike on the family home.

The father of Al Jazeera journalist Anas al-Sharif was killed in an Israeli airstrike in northern Gaza.

Al-Sharif told Al Jazeera that his father, Jamal, 65, was killed on Monday after his house in the Jabalia refugee camp was attacked.

“My beloved father became a martyr. To God we belong and to Him we will return,” al-Sharif wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Al-Sharif is the fourth Al Jazeera journalist to lose family members since Israel launched an attack on Gaza on October 7 in response to a Hamas attack on southern Israel.

Al-Sharif said the rest of his family was evacuated to an UNRWA school but Jamal was unable to flee for health reasons.

Al-Sharif said he would continue to work and cover the Israeli attack on Gaza.

“We buried my father’s body in the schools where people are sheltering here because we cannot move or leave this area at the moment. I will continue to cover events as they unfold.

“But despite all this, and despite the fact that my house was targeted and my father was killed, I will continue to provide coverage from the Jabalia refugee camp and from northern Gaza,” he said. -he adds.

Several Al Jazeera journalists in Gaza have lost family members in Israeli strikes over the past two months.

On October 25, Wael Dahdouh, Al Jazeera’s Arab correspondent in Gaza, lost his wife, son, daughter and grandson in an Israeli airstrike on the Nuseirat refugee camp.

Mohamed Abu al-Qumsan, a broadcast engineer at Al Jazeera’s Gaza bureau, lost 19 members of his family, including his father and two sisters, during Israeli air raids on the Jabalia refugee camp on October 31.

Al Jazeera Arabic correspondent Moamen Al Sharafi lost 22 family members in an Israeli airstrike on the Jabalia refugee camp on December 6.

The family of Al Jazeera correspondent Youmna ElSayed received a threatening phone call in October from someone claiming to be from the Israeli military, warning them to immediately leave their home as Israel steps up its bombing of the besieged enclave.

Reporting from Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, Al Jazeera’s Zein Basravi said that for journalists covering the war from Gaza, “it has been very personal.” It was very difficult. This report was produced under the most difficult circumstances.”

“And we have to understand that the people who live in Gaza, the journalists – ours and everyone else’s – are from there. They live there,” he said.

More than 18,200 people were killed in the Israeli attack on Gaza, according to Palestinian officials.

Around 1,200 people were killed in Hamas’ attack on Israel, according to Israeli authorities.
