Al Jazeera condemns most strongly Bombing and destruction The Israeli army set up an office in the Gaza Strip as a clear act to prevent journalists from fulfilling their sacred duty to inform the world and report events on the ground.
Al Jazeera promised to take all feasible ways to hold the Israeli government accountable for its actions.
The Israeli army notified the residents and occupants of the Al Jaalaa building, which is located in Al Jazeera’s office and leading international media such as the Associated Press and Middle East Eye, by telephone, and notified them that it took less than an hour to evacuate the building.
Al Jazeera called on all media and human rights agencies to condemn these unrelenting explosions and held the Israeli government responsible for deliberately targeting journalists and media organizations.
