Tyler Hicks has spent the last 10 days covering the fighting in Gaza City, and its aftermath. Mr. Hicks, a New York Times staff photographer, spoke with James Estrin by phone on Friday night from Gaza City. The conversation has been edited and condensed.

Bombs were being dropped by Israeli aircraft and there was a lot of tension on the street. Normally, it is quite busy in Gaza City and it takes time to get from place to place.

GAZA CITY, Gaza – The targeting of local journalists in Gaza has been seen as the Israeli government’s latest attempt at preventing the broadcasting of what many Palestinians consider to be the achievements of their resistance against Israeli aggression.

On Tuesday, Israeli airstrikes killed three Palestinian journalists. Mohammad al-Koumi and Houssam Salam, both cameramen for al-Aqsa television, were hit while traveling in a car clearly marked as belonging to the broadcast media, according to the station. Mohammad Abu Aisha, a journalist with al-Quds Educational Radio, was also killed later that day, when an airstrike hit his car.
