Israeli strike hits building housing AFP Gaza office
"Warning to reporters in Gaza: Stay away from Hamas operatives and facilities. Hamas, a terrorist group, will use you as human shields."
The official French-language account for the Israeli military posted the same comments in French, and also tweeted a message directly at AFP's French Twitter account.
"This building housed a Hamas intelligence HQ, do not be used as human shields," it said in French.
The last night attacks came after three Israeli strikes on buildings that house media offices, which the military defended, saying each raid targeted militant facilities.
The first two strikes came on Sunday, when war planes bombed the Showa and Housari building in the Rimal neighbourhood, causing extensive damage and wounding six journalists, including one who lost a leg.
The building housed various media outlets, including international stations and the Hamas-affiliated al-Quds channel.
