Al- Jazeera’s Office Bombed by Isreal in Air-strikes

The attack was carried out prior to the evacuation notice which was earlier given to the occupants of the building

In the Gaza Strip, an Israeli air raid demolished a building that housed international media offices, which includes Al Jazeera’s.

It was uncertain whether anyone was injured in the strike on Saturday. The 11-story al-Jalaa building, which also contains several residences and other offices, was seen collapsing to the surface after being blown up, with dust and debris flying into the air on the live Al Jazeera video.

Al Jazeera released a statement castigating the strike and imploring all media and human rights organizations to join forces in decrying the airstrikes and holding the Israeli government fully responsible.

Al Jazeera condemns in the strongest terms the bombing and destruction of its offices by the Israeli military in Gaza and views this as a clear act to stop journalists from conducting their sacred duty to inform the world and report events on the ground.

Al Jazeera promises to pursue every available route to hold the Israeli government responsible for its actions.

Meanwhile, the Associated Press described the Israeli airstrike as “horrifying and dreadful” on Saturday.

AP President and CEO, Gary Pruitt, in a statement which he released on Saturday after the nefarious airstrikes said that

The world will know less about what is happening in Gaza because of what happened today.

Israel said its fighter jets attacked a high-rise building that hosted military assets belonging to the military intelligence of the Hamas terror organization.

The building also hosted offices of civilian media outlets, which the Hamas terror group hides behind and uses as human shields,

An hour before the airstrike, Israel issued an evacuation warning to residents of the building, which also housed residential apartments and the Associated Press bureau.

Below is a video showing the tense moment journalists tried to grab their belongings and evacuate the building before the airstrikes were carried out.
