WH to Israel: Media safety is paramount responsibility

The White House reacted on Saturday to the Israeli airstrikes that destroyed a tower housing media organizations including the Associated Press and Al Jazeera. "We have communicated directly to the Israelis that ensuring the safety and security of journalists and independent media is a paramount responsibility," White House Press Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.

The AP stated it is "shocked and horrified" that the Israeli military would target and destroy the building, adding "we are seeking information from the Israeli government and are engaged with the US State Department to try to learn more." Meanwhile, Al Jazeera said that "it is clear that those who are waging this war do not only want to spread destruction and death in Gaza, but also to silence media that are witnessing, documenting and reporting the truth of what is happening in Gaza."
