On Saturday, Israeli forces attacked the Jala Tower in Gaza City, which housed the newsrooms of the Associated Press and Al-Jazeera, as well as residential apartments. The airstrike completely destroyed the building.
According to the IDF, Tel Aviv targeted the tower because the Palestinian Hamas group was allegedly using it for military intelligence purposes.
AP CEO and President Gary Pruitt issued a statement saying his company was shocked to learn about the Israeli attack.
