An explosion Thursday rocked a media tower housing various journalists in Gaza. The missile hit the offices of the production company FOX News uses in the Gaza Strip.
Two engineers working for the production company inside the Al-Shurouq Tower in the city center have been injured. There are other media production companies in the building and reports suggest others have been injured as well.
An Israeli missile or shell appeared to have struck the southern side of the 13th floor of the building, Reuters reported.
Reuters, who also has offices in the building, spoke with Israeli forces moments before the attack and were assured the building was not a target, but were hit by the missile minutes later.
A live camera feed showed smoke pouring from the upper floors of the 16-story building.
