Silencing the Media: Press TV Station in Gaza attacked twice by Israel

presstv copy

The office building of Iran’s English-language 24-hour news channel, Press TV, in Gaza has been hit twice in the Israeli regime’s fresh airstrikes.

During the bombings, a Press TV cameraman has been injured.

Israel launched fresh air raids on two media buildings in Gaza City on Sunday morning, injuring at least six journalists.

“At least six journalists were wounded, with minor and moderate injuries, when Israeli warplanes hit the al-Quds TV office in the Showa and Housari building in the Rimal neighborhood of Gaza City,” Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

Most of the reporters evacuated after an initial strike but they later returned to the site only to come under another assault.

Witnesses said the strikes caused extensive damage to the building.

At least 50 Palestinians have been killed and more than 500 others wounded since the beginning of Israeli attacks against the Gaza Strip on Wednesday. The latest casualties were two kids and an activist.
