Israel’s internal security agency has announced that it plans to “eliminate” the corporate media “journalist” who joined Hamas terrorists during their brutal October 7 assault on the Jewish state.
As Slay News reported, several “photojournalists” accompanied the terrorists as they attacked while they entered Israel last month and slaughtered 1,400 people.
The reporters worked for corporate media outlets, including CNN and the Associated Press (AP).
Further, the “reporters” had prior knowledge of the attacks but chose not to raise the alarm.
The reporters posted pictures of themselves riding into Israel with Hamas during the massacre.
In some instances, actual Israeli hostages can be seen.
Hassan Eslaiah, who worked for CNN and the AP, posted several images and videos on Twitter/X that were taken during the attack.
One of the posts includes a clip showing Hamas fighters ransacking a burning Israeli tank.
“All the Israeli soldiers who were in the tank were kidnapped,” the CNN photojournalist told his followers.
Eslaiah was previously pictured in a loving embrace with Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar in an undated photo.
Eslaia, along with Yousef Masoud, Ali Mahmud, and Hatem Ali, were the four photojournalists who joined Hamas during the barbaric October 7 assault.
The work by the four reporters, that was obtained during the attacks, was used in reporting by corporate media outlets, including CNN and the AP.
One picture, uploaded by one of the “photojournalists” to his own Facebook page, shows him actually holding a grenade.

Their presence alone raised a myriad of questions surrounding what these “photojournalists” knew about the timing of the attack.
Perhaps more disturbing was the possibility that the U.S. news organizations they were working for knew what was going on.
On that front, both the AP and CNN put out statements categorically denying they were told what was going to happen.
They also severed ties with the “journalists” in question.
Outrage rightfully ensued after the series of revelations, and raised questions about how Israel will respond.
According to Israeli UN representative and Knesset member Danny Danon, they will be added to the termination list.
Israel’s internal security agency announced that they will eliminate all participants of the October 7 massacre.
The “photojournalists” who took part in recording the assault will be added to that list.

The journalists were exposed in a report from media watchdog Honest Reporting.
Honest Reporting was founded by veteran Israeli journalist Gil Hoffman.
Its motto is the “audience deserves to know.”
“When international news agencies decide to pay for material that has been captured under such problematic circumstances, their standards may be questioned and their audience deserves to know about it,” one section of their report on Eslaiah reads.
“And if their people on the ground actively or passively collaborated with Hamas to get the shots, they should be called out to redefine the border between journalism and barbarism.”
