The Israel Defense Forces have hit a second media building in Gaza. A missile hit Al-Shuruq Tower, which houses Reuters, Fox News, Al-Arabiya, and more than a dozen other news outlets. At least two journalists were injured. The airstrike comes just days after the Al-Johara Tower, a base for a number of news outlets, was hit.This statement clarifies my earlier uncertainty over whether two buildings had actually been hit. Hard to believe twice could be an accident. Also, as I reported earlier, a number of journalists have been killed and injured in Gaza.
