Israeli airstrikes kill 3 Palestinian journalists

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israeli airstrikes killed three Palestinian journalists in their cars Tuesday, a Gaza health official and the head of the Hamas-run Al Aqsa TV said. Israel acknowledged targeting the men, claiming they had ties to militants.

The strikes came on the seventh day of Israel's offensive against Gaza's Hamas rulers. A number of journalists have been killed over the years while covering fighting between the Jewish state and the Palestinian militant group, but not in targeted strikes Israel acknowledged.

Two of those killed were cameramen working for Al Aqsa TV, the centerpiece of a growing Hamas media empire, said station head Mohammed Thouraya. The two were driving in a car with press markings in Gaza City on Tuesday afternoon, shortly after wrapping up an assignment at the city's Shifa Hospital, Thouraya added.

The station said the car was hit by a missile, broadcasting the aftermath with the vehicle consumed by flames. Thouraya said the bodies of the two, Mohammed al-Koumi and Hussam Salam, were badly burned.

What a shame that Americans from the MSM and BBC weren't with their Muslim buddies. The Israelis could have scored a major hit on the Islamist propaganda machine.

I’ll bet that they were taking videos of terrorists for propaganda purposes.

If you truly want to be disgusted with the Pali scum go to the Daily Mail’s front page and see what they did. But a warning, it’s not for the squeamish.

It’s pretty much an open secret that most of the sectarian fighting in palestine isn’t over religion or allah. That’s the sanatized message the west is fed. It’s actually over drug, weapons, and prostitution turf.

What do you call three dead Palestinian journalists?

A good start.

Ok, ok, I know.

It is really a shame that we have to be joyous over the Media being killed. It has come to this though. I do think that if this is really happening, then they just might be doing their job!

When you have the Media doing their anti-democratic thing or at the least the pro che thing, you do have to take notice.

We no longer have a Media that cares about what happens only about what they thing should happen. They care little about what and why, much less about who. We have become victims of this Media and unfortunately have not recognized the problem.

In reality, we have NO media today! They are all very biased to some extent and if you really want the truth, you have to go to so many places that it is not viable.

Maybe that is the goal of the leftists.

A dull blade from the back to the front neck would've been more efficient.
Kibbles will do though.

How soon can we replace them with CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC/LAT/NYT/etc....

I'm sure the IDF will appreciate a "Target Rich Environment".

Were these 2nd rate journalists? Why were they in a car with “press markings”? All the ambulances were taken by the others?
