At least 100 journalists and media workers have been killed in and around Gaza as of 19 May, 2024, ever since the Israel-Hamas war began on 7 October, 2023. Of them, 100 are Palestinian, two Israeli, and three Lebanese. Sixteen journalists were reported injured, four reported missing and 25 reported arrested, according to the US-based non-profit, Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).

The number of journalists killed who have lost their lives in war has jumped multiple times since 20 October 2023, when Indian Printer and Publisher first noted the number of fatalities. The death toll on 20 October 2023 was 21. It rose to 48 on 19 November 2023 and 83 on 10 January 2024 and 88 on 19 February 2024. Most of the Palestinian journalists were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  

CPJ says the list includes names based on information obtained from its sources in the region and media reports. It includes all journalists involved in news-gathering activity. It is unclear whether all of these journalists were covering the conflict at the time of their deaths, but CPJ says it included them in our count as it investigates their circumstances. The list is being updated on a regular basis.

“Since the Israel-Gaza war began, journalists have been paying the highest price— their lives—to defend our right to the truth. Each time a journalist dies or is injured, we lose a fragment of that truth,” said CPJ Program Director Carlos Martínez de la Serna in New York. “Journalists are civilians who are protected by international humanitarian law in times of conflict. Those responsible for their deaths face dual trials: one under international law and another before history’s unforgiving gaze.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
