News Organizations Send Letter to Leaders of Israel and Egypt Seeking Access to Gaza Strip

From a story on by Oliver Darcy headlined “News organizations send letter to leaders of Israel and Egypt seeking access to Gaza Strip as war escalates”:

A coalition of 11 news organizations sent a letter on Monday to the leaders of Israel and Egypt, asking their governments to grant access for international journalists to enter the Gaza Strip to cover the ongoing war.

“As the current crisis enters its sixth week, the need for more journalists to document events on the ground is greater than ever — particularly when so much information is being shared informally via social media,” the letter said.
