Arresting journalists and placing severe restrictions on their work

Since the war started, Israel has prevented international and local journalists from entering the Gaza strip. The IDF spokesman allowed single hand-picked journalists very limited access.
But now, things are getting even worse: civil areas in the south of Israel have become restricted zones. One photographer has been arrested and another one had his camera's memory wiped out.
Freedom of the press appears to exist in theory only.
