Hamas released two elderly Israeli women held hostage in Gaza on Monday, the International Committee of the Red Cross confirmed.

This comes as Israel has ramped up airstrikes and U.S. officials are reportedly asking Israel to hold off on its expected ground invasion of Gaza.

Meanwhile, supplies such as food, water and medicine are slowly trickling into Gaza, but the United Nations says it is not enough.

All this information comes from a contingent of journalists from around the world, who are risking their lives to report on the Israel-Hamas war.

There have been 19 Palestinian, three Israeli and one Lebanese reporters who have been killed while reporting on the war.

About a dozen other journalists are injured, detained or missing.

Jodie Ginsberg, the president of the Committee to Protect Journalists, a nonprofit promoting press freedom worldwide, joined host Errol Louis Monday night on "Inside City Hall" to talk more about the situation on the ground.

“What is clear is how difficult it is for journalists in Gaza to report. There are very few places of safety. There’s limited electricity. There’s limited internet. Getting those reports out is extremely challenging,” Ginsberg said. “But it’s extremely important, because that’s the information we need, as the international community, to understand what’s happening inside Gaza at the moment.”
