Foreign journalists are enjoying unprecedented freedom in covering the Gaza conflict this week, especially in comparison to Operation Cast Lead.

According to the Government Press Office, as of Sunday, 500 foreign journalists applied for press credentials allowing them free access to conflict zones, in addition to nearly 1,400 journalists and crew members already covering Israel and the Middle East.

Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein instructed GPO Director Nitzan Chen to grant the journalists access as quickly and efficiently as possible. As such, the GPO has been working extended hours and organizing tours to the south led by Edelstein, including to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.
