Known militant groups in Gaza denied having any connection to the abductions. There has been no word of any demands made by the kidnappers.
The Committee to Protect Journalists condemned the kidnappings.
"We are gravely concerned about our colleagues' safety and call for their immediate and unconditional release," said Joel Simon, CPJ's executive director. "These are well established journalists who are not participants in the conflict. They should be treated accordingly and freed."
