Al-Jalaa Tower, which was bombed by the Israeli army, housed the headquarters of international media, including the Qatari Al-Jazeera network and the American Associated Press, and its destruction sparked a wave of widespread criticism of Israel.

Israel justified its targeting of Al-Jalaa Tower, where international media headquarters were located in the Gaza Strip, during the last war, by saying that Hamas was using it to confuse the Iron Dome system that protects Israeli territory from the rockets of the Palestinian resistance.

The tower housed foreign media agencies and channels, including the US Associated Press and the Qatar-based Al Jazeera network.

Israel’s envoy to the United Nations, Gilad Erdan, gave a clarification in New York about the attack on the tower. He also offered to help rebuild the Associated Press offices in Gaza.

The agency welcomed contact with the Israelis, but said that it had not yet seen evidence to support Israeli allegations that the tower was used to jam the Iron Dome.
