Media watchdog denounces Israeli airstrikes on media offices in Gaza
'Targeting the media is a war crime,' says Reporters Without Borders
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Friday denounced the attacks on media offices in the Gaza Strip.
“Israeli strikes targeted the Hajji Tower this morning in Gaza, which houses the offices of @AFP, @AlJazeera, @AinMedia and other local media,” the media watchdog wrote on X.
“RSF strongly denounces the ongoing Israeli assault on the press. Targeting the media is a war crime,” it stressed.
The Israeli army has widened its air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip, which has been under relentless airstrikes since the surprise offensive by Hamas on Oct. 7.
More than 10,700 people have been killed in the conflict, including at least 9,227 Palestinians and more than 1,538 Israelis.
