1 min read

The Israel-Gaza conflict has resulted in the deaths of over 145 people in Gaza, nine in Israel and hundreds more injuries, according to Sky News.

The exchange of artillery strikes and rockets has not let up, with the possibility of a ground invasion by Israeli troops. On Saturday, an Israeli airstrike leveled a high rise building in Gaza that contained the offices of The Associated Press, Al Jazeera and other media outlets.

Israeli warplanes have unleashed a series of heavy airstrikes at several locations across Gaza City. Explosions rocked the city from north to south for 10 minutes early Monday.

An Israeli airstrike destroyed a building housing The Associated Press, Al Jazeera offices, as well as other media outlet headquarters as well.

The strike came about an hour after the Israeli military ordered people to evacuate on Saturday, May 15, according to reporting from The Associated Press. The building also housed other media offices and residential apartments.

The Associated Press’ top editor, Sally Buzbee, is calling for an independent investigation into the Israeli airstrike that targeted and destroyed a Gaza City building housing the AP, broadcaster Al-Jazeera and other media.
