Israeli Strikes Hit Hamas-Affiliated Al-Aqsa TV Headquarters

Israeli airstrikes hit the headquarters of al-Aqsa TV in Gaza on November 12, the official Hamas television channel said.

At least three missiles were fired at the building by F-16 fighter planes, according to a Palestinian news agency.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the IDF announced the attack on the building. The article described the building as “a terrorist building belonging to Hamas.”

Over 300 rockets were launched from Gaza at Israel on November 12 according to the Israeli Defense Forces, who announced strikes against “terror targets in the Gaza strip” in response.

The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Hamas was responsible for the attacks.

Earlier in the day, thousands of people attended the funerals of seven fighters with the al-Qassam Brigades killed the day before during an Israeli special forces operation in the Khan Yunis neighborhood of Gaza. One Israeli officer was killed, and a second was wounded during the incident, reports said.

An explosion, said to show a strike on the building, and the aftermath of the attack were captured by a local photojournalist. Anas Jamal al-Sharif reported that the entire al-Aqsa TV team survived, with one person injured in the area. Credit: Anas Jamal al-Sharif via Storyful
