The award is also dedicated to all Palestinian journalists who are working on the ground right now and face the risk of losing their lives to show the world the brutality of the war in Gaza. 

The award is also dedicated to those Palestinian journalists who have already lost their lives in Gaza while shedding light on the war crimes committed against Palestinians. 

Al Dahdouh recently lost his son Hamza in Israeli shelling on Sunday, Jan. 7. Hamza was also a journalist for Al Jazeera.
