Gaza Two cameramen from Hamas-owned Al Aqsa TV were among six people killed in Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip, raising Tuesday’s death toll to 20, ahead of possible truce declaration, a Hamas spokesman said.
Health officials said a total of 125 people had been killed and over 1,000 wounded since Israel began its relentless bombing campaign on November 14.
“Two cameramen from Al Aqsa TV have been killed: Mahmoud Komi and Hossam Salama,” health ministry spokesman Ashraf Al Qudra told AFP, saying the strike hit a car in Gaza City’s Nasser area that was clearly marked as a press vehicle.
The Israeli army had no comment on the apparent targeting of a press vehicle.
