International Media Can't Enter the Gaza Strip
The Gaza Strip seems to be in the news all the time. There is so much unrest there. Now Israeli defense officials have reinstated a ban on international journalists entering the Gaza Strip. This is despite protests from the heads of major news organizations and an appeal to the Supreme Court. After weeks of media protests, the ban was lifted, only to be re-imposed the following day as part of a wider closure of the Gaza border in response to Palestinian rocket attacks. I think it is far safer for them to stay out of there.
