Israeli airstrike kills Palestinian journalist

LONDON: Gaza-based Palestinian journalist Yousef Abu Hussein was killed on Wednesday by an Israeli airstrike on the building in which he lived. His wife and brother were injured. 

Footage by Al-Araby TV showed that the building’s two upper floors were destroyed but the rest of it did not appear to be significantly damaged. Residents did not reportedly received any prior notice of the attack.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) on Thursday condemned the killing of Abu Hussein and called on Israeli authorities to immediately clarify whether they deliberately struck his home.

On May 12, Israeli airstrikes also destroyed the Al-Shorouk building in Gaza, which housed a number of media outlets.
