From another article I read only two bullets hit the building. And "precise" shots? How precise does a bullet need to be to hit a multi-level building?
That article also says this...
Al Jazeera English’s Nicole Johnston tweeted that the Israeli Defense Forces confirmed firing two shots at the news bureau.
Yet they failed to link any source for that. Not saying it is or is not true, but if you're going to write as a journalist that a countries defense force officially confirmed it, maybe they should link some kind of source. I'm not trying to be an apologist here, but I am a man trying to show some caution. OF COURSE Al Jeazeera said they were being attacked with "precise shots", but don't say how many shots or where. The other articles I've read just said TWO shots hit the building, with a vague "Israel confirmed it" but no citations or sources that they did admit to it. Here, let's look at another article....
Al Jazeera evacuated their newsroom in Gaza City on Tuesday, saying an Israeli soldier had fired two shots into the building.
So they saw the Israeli soldier who fired these two shots?
An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was unaware of any such action, adding that there was a lot of gunfire in Gaza from all sides.
But Al Jazeera said it was confirmed by the Israeli Defense? But Israel is saying they never said anything, and again, the Al Jazeera article sites zero sources.
Al Jazeera works in the same tower block as U.S. media organization Associated Press
So it's not just Al Jazeera, but Israel is also apparently firing "precise shots" at the AP as well? How come the article isn't AP targeted by Israeli precise shots? Because that doesn't draw as much sympathy towards the Palestinian side...
I'm not on either side of this conflict, as I don't have a horse in this race. But people need to wise up and realize that this war is just as much a war for control of the media and internet sentiment as it is for actual objectives. Hamas knows they will never beat Israel in a war, but they know they can draw sympathy and a negative view of Israel on the internet. "Two bullets hit Al Jazeera building" turned into "Two precise intentional shots confirmed as a threat from the Israel Defense forces warning they will kill journalists if they keep broadcasting.
Again, not saying I know what happened either way, but read more about this than the article from Al Jazeera and it's unclear what actually happened. A building getting hit by a couple random bullets isn't unheard of in a war zone. The real sad part is everyone here (so far) has just swallowed this story as 100% fact. You ask me, yeah the building got hit by two bullets, but it could have been Hamas, could have been Iasrael, and either way it was probably just an accident. But that doesn't sound as profound as "ISRAEL ATTACKING JOURNALISTS!"
Challenge everything you read when it comes to this conflict. Read multiple sources. Don't listen to anything coming out of either horses mouth.
