Israeli airstrikes kill 3 Palestinian journalists

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- The head of the Hamas-run Al Aqsa TV station says an Israeli airstrike killed two cameramen after they wrapped up an assignment at Gaza's Shifa Hospital, while a Gaza health official says another airstrike killed a third journalist.
Al Aqsa footage of Tuesday's strike shows the vehicle going up in flames. The station's head, Mohammed Thouraya, says the car had press markings.
The other journalist, who was working for a private radio station was killed later Tuesday when a missile hit his car, the official said.
Israel's military had no immediate comment. The strikes came on the seventh day of an Israeli offensive in Gaza. Targeted killings of journalists would be unprecedented. Over the weekend, Israeli airstrikes hit two media centers housing Al Aqsa and another station seen as pro-Hamas.
