In the restive Gaza Strip, an Israeli airstrike demolished a multi-story building that housed the offices of media organisations such as the Associated Press and Al-Jazeera. Other offices and residential units were also housed in the building. During this time, Hamas has also launched hundreds of missiles into Israel, killing ten civilians.
The attack occurred about an hour after Israeli forces had issued an evacuation order for the high-rise site. Since Monday, Israeli attacks in Gaza have killed dozens of civilians, including women and children.
After an Israeli airstrike in Gaza flattened a building hosting the Associated Press and Al Jazeera bureaus, the White House warned Israel of the importance of defending independent media.
Since Monday, Hamas has launched over 2,000 missiles into Israel, killing ten people and wounding 560, according to international reports. There have been 139 Palestinians killed and 950 injured in Gaza.
