Press TV’s correspondent in the Gaza Strip has been left homeless as a result of indiscriminate bombing of the Palestinian coastal territory by the Israeli forces.   

Ashraf Shannon heard of the news that his house in an apartment block in Gaza had been entirely demolished after the Israelis razed it down by their F-16 fighter jets early on Monday.  

“I didn’t expect a 6-story building to be almost gunned. It was hit directly by a missile from the Israeli regime or a bomb,” Shannon told Press TV in a report he sent from Gaza on Tuesday.

The journalist was reporting on the situation in Shifa Hospital in Gaza where hundreds of people are being treated for injuries sustained because of Israeli attacks.

“I don’t know how to describe this. All of a sudden, after I heard the news and I was sure that the building was gone, I started telling my colleagues: Yesterday I had a home and now I am homeless, me and my family,” he said.

Israel’s ongoing onslaught on Gaza has left nearly 800 people killed and more than 4,100 injured. The attacks began on October 7, the day on which the Gaza-based Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched a multi-pronged operation into the occupied territories to respond to weeks of Israeli atrocities against the Palestinians.

Israel has imposed a total blockade on Gaza, a small territory on the Mediterranean where some 2.3 million people live.

The regime has vowed it would do everything to compensate the Hamas blitz which left almost 1,000 Israelis dead.

Rights groups and international organization have criticized the Israeli regime for its indiscriminate bombing of Gaza and its siege on the territory which has left people without water, electricity and other basic supplies.
