Watchdog: Israel Must Explain ‘Targeting’ Journalists

JERUSALEM — Israel must provide an “immediate and detailed explanation” for its targeting of journalists and media buildings during last month’s Gaza conflict, the Committee to Protect Journalists said on Sunday.

In a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the watchdog said it was “gravely concerned that Israeli airstrikes targeted individual journalists and media facilities in the Gaza Strip between November 18 and 20.”

The New-York based CPJ noted that two cameramen for Hamas’s Al-Aqsa television station and the director of the private Al-Quds Educational Radio were killed by Israel during its eight-day military campaign to halt rocket fire from Gaza.

At least three media buildings, including one housing AFP’s Gaza office, were hit during the conflict.

1. The US set the standard with our attacks on Al-Jazeera

Israel knows they can get away with it.

5. IDF asserted bunkers at the time and published some interesting videos

They also used spaces nearby for launching.
