Iran’s Arabic-language television news network Al-Alam TV has condemned the Israeli regime’s attack on its office in the Gaza Strip, vowing to continue its “media battle” alongside Palestinian fighters.
Al-Alam TV made the remarks in a statement on Tuesday, after Israeli fighter jets targeted its office in Gaza, causing severe damage.
The statement went on to say that the occupying regime targeted this network because Al-Alam has been at the forefront of the media fight against this “cancerous tumor” since the beginning of its creation.
The network has also tried all its best to widely reflect the “historic operation” of the Palestinian resistance fighters after they launched their large-scale attack against the Tel Aviv regime in years over the weekend, the statement said.
It went on to say that the office of Al-Alam was targeted in Gaza because the network showed the world the rage of a proud nation, and unlike mainstream media, it reported the brutal killing of innocent Palestinian children in Gaza by the Israeli regime.
The network also noted that neither this attack nor any other measure will stop it, but will rather make it more determined to continue its path as the Israelis fear reporting of the realities on the ground in Gaza as well as the large-scale operation of Palestinian fighters by media such as Al-Alam.
Al-Alam further pledged that it will continue to stand by the “brave” Palestinians and turn the spotlight on their concerns about a free and liberated Palestine.
Israel launched deadly strikes on the densely-populated Gaza Strip on Saturday after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group waged a surprise attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the usurping entity.
Hamas said that its operation came in response to Israel’s violations at al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East al-Quds and growing settler violence.
Earlier in the day, three Palestinian journalists were also killed in an Israeli airstrike on a residential building in western parts of Gaza, while they were covering the evacuation of a threatened building.
The occupying entity has also killed dozens of Palestinian children in its aerial assaults on the besieged Gaza Strip.
According to the Gaza Health Ministry, 704 Palestinians, including 143 children and 105 women, have been killed by Israeli strikes.
