Israel targets Hamas TV broadcasts

Israeli Defense Forces attack Al-Aqsa station

LONDON — Israel is taking its war against Palestinian militant group Hamas to the airwaves.

Israeli Defense Forces bombed the offices of Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV station in Gaza on Sunday and subsequently hacked into its frequency to air an animated clip of the Palestinian group’s leadership being gunned down.

“Time is running out,” warned the clip in Arabic.

The Intl. Federation of Journalists has criticized Israel for the attack.

Hamas officials have also accused Israel of interrupting its radio broadcasts to broadcast anti-Hamas messages in Arabic. One of the messages reportedly told listeners, “Hamas leaders are hiding and leaving you on the front line.”

Israel’s military campaign, launched Dec. 27, aims to stop Hamas firing rockets from Gaza into Israel. The conflict has since escalated, with more than 500 Palestinians killed and 2,500 wounded, according to Palestinian medical sources. The United Nations has said that at least a quarter of those killed have been civilians.

Five Israelis have been killed since the outbreak of fighting.

Journalists have been unable to enter Gaza to independently verify the figures ever since the Israeli army declared the area a closed military zone.
