Did the strike close to the RT camera hit the building itself or was it somewhere close to the camera's building? I have a good idea of what buildings are around the RT camera but i was away eating dinner.
Two Israeli strikes have left three Palestinian journalists dead, with media buildings targeted by the IDF two days in a row. The AFP building was hit in another attack later on, with no casualties reported.
Mahmoud al-Koumi and Husam Salameh, cameramen for the local al-Aqsa TV station, were killed in a car marked with a press sign near the al-Wihda towers in Gaza.
Both journalists were 30 years old and fathers of four children. Two other al-Aqsa employees were wounded in the first strike.
The second attack killed the director of al-Quds Educational Radio, Muhammad Abu Aisha, in his car.
In the latest strike, the AFP building in Gaza was hit, with no casualties reported so far.
A series of massive explosions, followed by a massive blackout, were also reported near the Al Shorook building in Gaza, which houses several media outlets.
Meanwhile, the IDF posted on its Twitter that its air forces “surgically targeted a Hamas operations center on the 7th floor of a media building in Gaza”, with a “direct hit confirmed.” The IDF also tweeted a warning to all journalists to stay away from Hamas facilities within Gaza territory, claiming that the group will use them as human shields.
An Israeli strike destroyed houses on the Egyptian side of the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip Monday. A security source said that Israeli F-16 fired missiles at tunnels and houses adjacent to the border.
