‘We Can’t Bear This Anymore. We Are Exhausted’: Gaza News Anchor Breaks Down on Air | WATCH

*Salman al-Bashir, a journalist working for the Palestinian Authority’s TV channel, tore off his protective gear while reporting live on air after learning of the death of his colleague Mohammed Abu Hatab, according to Guardian News. The Palestinian news anchor in the studio could be seen crying.

Bashir delivered an emotional report from outside the hospital where Hatab and his family were pronounced dead. As we said, the reaction from the news anchor in the studio was so emotional that she started crying at the news.

Bashir added that  journalists were not being protected and the protective vests and helmets labeled “press” were “merely a slogan.”

Bashir said Hatab had been alive only 30 minutes before, adding that journalists reporting from Gaza were “victims live on television.”

Correspondent Hatab and 11 members of his family were killed in southern Gaza following an alleged Israeli airstrike on his home, according to a statement from the Palestinian Authority-run television network.

The Palestinian reporter is the 27th journalist to be killed in the conflict, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists
