By Haaretz – 2 Dec 2009

The Paris-based media watchdog Reporters Without Borders on Wednesday awarded veteran Haaretz correspondent Amira Hass a “Press Freedom” prize, for “independent and outspoken reporting.”

In granting the award, the watcdog’s committee cited Hass’ articles about the Gaza Strip during Israel’s winter offensive against Hamas in the coastal territory.

Hass, who has lived in both Gaza and the West Bank, has also been awarded a number of prizes in the past for her reporting.

She was awarded the Golden Dove of Peace Prize by the Rome-based organization Archivo Disarmo in 2001, and won the UNESCO Guillermo Cona World Press Freedom Prize in 2003.

In October this year, the International Women’s Media Foundation granted Hass the Lifetime Achievement Award.
