The Newseum, a museum in Washington, D.C. that chronicles the news industry, plans to add two dead terrorists to its "Journalists Memorial." The announcement to include these terrorists on the memorial, which "pays tribute to reporters, photographers and broadcasters who have died reporting the news," was made on the Newseum's website.
The terrorists the Newseum plans to honor are former members of the terrorist group Hamas, Mahmoud Al-Kumi and Hussam Salama.
Here is a picture of the two terrorists, provided by the Newseum:
A similar description is written for each of the terrorists: Each "was one of two Al-Aqsa cameramen who were killed in an Israeli air strike. They were covering fighting between Israel and fighting between Israel and the militant group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, when a missile hit their vehicle. Al-Aqsa said the journalists’ car was clearly marked ['TV.'"
And here's a picture of the two (notice the similarities), via alresalah.ps:
But these men weren't exactly your run of the mill journalists. They were in fact working for a deadly terrorist organization.
"Mahmoud Al-Kumi and Hussam Salama were Hamas operatives and cameramen for Hamas’ Al-Aqsa television network, which regularly features programming that encourages and praises attacks on Israeli civilians. The IDF targeted Al-Kumi and Salama on Nov. 20," writes the Israel Defense Forces.
"Palestinian media reported that the two men were indeed Hamas operatives."
