Palestinian journalist Bisan Owda has won the Peabody Award for her work with AJ+ about the impact of the Israeli war on Palestinians in Gaza. 

Owda has been reporting the war in Gaza since its beginning in October 2023 and covering the daily hardships that Palestinians in Gaza face because of the war. 

Owda has dedicated the award to the university students who have been protesting against the war in Gaza, "to all the people who took to the streets. To all the people at home who are participating in boycotts. To all the people worldwide, regardless of their religion, color, and ethnicity."
