    Israel killed 15 journalists during the Gaza war, A real threat to Freedom of Speech


    the PEC and the UN indicate that the houses of 16 journalists that were destroyed in Israeli attacks were “often purposely targeted.” - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2015/01/ignori....DIyc4d8s.dpuf
    The report also reveals that, of the eight Gaza media outlets Israel destroyed, five were deliberately bombed. Israeli forces shelled three headquarters of Al-Aqsa TV, where 325 employees worked, and “deliberately disturbed the broadcasting of 7 radio and TV stations and websites, and used these stations to broadcast inciting messages against the Palestinian resistance, as they did in their previous attacks on the Gaza Strip.”

    What a surprise, Hamas's propaganda TV station was bombed during a war of Hamas vs Israel.

    Don't make this out to be some sort of barbaric act against innocent journalism when the station actively promotes lone-wolf attacks. It's not even the first time they've bombed it.
