israeli strike targets media building in Gaza

An Israeli airstrike damaged a complex of media offices in Gaza City early Sunday, injuring six journalists, witnesses said.

The Al-Shawa building houses a number of foreign and Palestinian media organizations, including Ma'an News Agency's headquarters in the Gaza Strip.

A Ma'an correspondent said the impact was focused on the eleventh floor, where the office of al-Quds TV is located.

He said three al-Quds TV journalists were moderately injured, and three others, whose identity could not be immediately confirmed.

Witnesses said Israel's aerial bombardment of Gaza continued with intensity overnight. Israeli shelling pummeled Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza, while fighter jets struck southern Gaza.
