Abu Omar, whose leg was amputated, accompanied Hamas terrorists to Kibbutz Nir Oz and documented their atrocities on October 7. He even shared a video in which he is heard saying: "The friends have progressed, may God bless." The Qatari network "reporter" is not the only one who broadcast the events of October 7 to the world, as many so-called journalists collaborated with Hamas to document their actions and spread the atrocities.

One of them is Muthna Najjar, who joined the terrorists on October 7 and reported from Kibbutz Nir Oz. He proudly captured the kidnapping of the Bibas family. The IDF targeted his home during the war and currently he moves between hiding places while continuing to broadcast to the world. The Gazan "reporter" Ahmed Najjar filmed some of the kidnappings by Nukhba terrorists, broadcast from the surrounding towns, filmed atrocities and distributed the videos with his signature.
On Tuesday, the Arabic IDF Spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Avichay Adraee, announced that during an IDF operation at a Hamas base in the northern Gaza Strip, a laptop was found belonging to an Al-Jazeera "journalist" Mohamed Washah. The IDF found on the laptop intelligence materials that unequivocally link him to Hamas.
"From the findings on the computer, it appears that, in addition to his role as a 'journalist', Mohamed, born in 1986 in al-Bureij, is a senior military operative in the Hamas anti-tank missile array, and at the end of 2022 he moved to work in the R&D of aerial weapons for the terrorist organization," Adraee posted on the X platform. He added that "an intelligence analysis on the computer revealed images linking him to his activities in Hamas. I wonder what additional details about other 'journalists' we will find out in the near future."
At the beginning of last month, two "journalists" named Hamza Dahdouh and Mustafa Thuraya were killed in an IDF attack in the Rafah area. The IDF stated that intelligence information proved that the two were active in terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, which took part in promoting terrorist operations against the military forces. According to the IDF spokesman, just before their elimination, the two terrorist operatives used drones in a way that threatened the forces. One of the killed terrorists is the son of the head of the Al Jazeera bureau in Gaza, Wael Dahdouh, who has been photographed with Yahya Sinwar.
