Journalists in Gaza have been killed covering the war and sheltering from it. Some have died with their colleagues; others, with their families.

They tried to report any way they could, recording scenes of carnage and rare moments of calm through photos, videos and social media posts. The images they left behind — or the words they didn’t know would be their last — allowed a glimpse into the lives of besieged Palestinians in a devastating war.

The Post has collected some of the last photos and videos these journalists shared. This is Gaza through their lens.
