Egypt Nominates Wael El Dahdouh For UNESCO Freedom Of Press Prize

The Egyptian Journalist’s Syndicate nominated the Palestinian Journalist Wael El-Dahdouh for the UNESCO Freedom of Press Prize/ Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize 2024. 

Established in 1997, the award is given to persons or institutions who made significant contributions to strengthening the freedom of the press, even during dangerous situations.

Khaled al-Balshy, the head of the syndicate, submitted El-Dahdouh’s nomination form on Thursday, detailing his professional career and the atrocities he encountered while covering Israel’s offensive on Gaza.

Gaza lost members of his family in two different attacks.

Members of El-Dahdouh’s family were tragically murdered during an attack on the journalist’s house, including two of his children, his grandchild, and his wife.

His son Hamza, a journalist, and a cameraman was barbarically targeted and murdered by an Israeli missile while driving between Khan Younis and Rafah.
