GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories (AFP) - An Israeli air strike hit a Gaza City media building on Sunday, injuring at least six journalists, as a separate raid in northern Gaza killed two people, Palestinian medical sources said.
"At least six journalists were wounded, with minor and moderate injuries, when Israeli warplanes hit the al-Quds TV office in the Showa and Housari building in the Rimal neighbourhood of Gaza City," health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.
Witnesses reported extensive damage to the building, and said journalists in the building had evacuated after an initial strike, which was followed by at least two more on the site.
In the northern strip, Israeli war planes carried out two separate raids on houses that killed two and injured 10 others, Mr Qudra said.
"Two young citizens were killed and at least ten others wounded in two separate raids on houses in Beit Lahiya and Beit Hanun," he said.
