Israel Bombs Media Buildings in GazaSubmitted by PWA on Sun, 11/18/2012 - 15:29
Israeli airstrikes in Gaza early Sunday morning wounded at least eight journalists, Agence France-Presse reports.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tweeted that the targets included "a communications facility" but later said it was a Hamas "communications antenna."
BBC reports that the two media buildings hit housed offices of Hamas TV as well as Sky News and Independent Television Network.
Russia Today reports that an initial Israeli strike on the building prompted the journalists to evacuate. Two more hits followed. Six reporters received minor to moderate injuries—one lost a leg—while local Italian, German, Lebanese and Kuwaiti media outlets were damaged.
