Attack on Gaza media condemned

Reporters Without Borders has condemned Israeli missile attacks on two media centres in Gaza that wounded six Palestinian journalists and damaged the equipment of foreign media outlets.

Sunday's attacks on the two high-rise buildings damaged offices of the Hamas TV station, Al Aqsa, and a Lebanese-based broadcaster, Al Quds TV, seen as sympathetic to the Islamists.

Germany's public broadcaster ARD; Russia Today, a state TV network that broadcasts in English; and Sky News Arabia said they lost equipment in the attacks.

Christophe Deloire, the director of Reporters Without Borders' international headquarters in Paris, called the attacks unjustified and a threat to freedom of information. He called for an investigation into the circumstances of the raid.

The Israeli military said the strikes targeted Hamas communications equipment on the buildings' rooftops.
