The US called on Israel to justify the May 15 attack on international media offices in Gaza, said Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

On Saturday, the Israeli Air Force attacked a 15-story building that housed local and international media offices in the Gaza Strip, explaining the attack by the fact that the building housed the intelligence headquarters of the Hamas movement, which used the offices of media and journalists operating there as cover. This building also housed apartments and offices of various companies.

Joe Biden and other members of the administration have directly expressed concerns to Israeli colleagues about the safety of journalists working in Gaza. The US noted the importance of protecting them. Soon after the strike, we requested additional information on its justification, Blinken said at a press conference with Danish FM Jeppe Kofod.
