The American Pen Association (PEN) on Saturday issued a statement condemning the Israeli attack on the headquarters of journalists in the Gaza Strip.

Iran Press/America: In a statement, the American Pen Association condemned the Israeli airstrikes on journalists' headquarters in the Gaza Strip and called for an investigation into the crime.

On Saturday, the Israeli regime targeted the Burj al-Jalaa in the Gaza Strip, where a number of international media offices are located, in a criminal act to prevent its crimes from being covered up.

The tower housed 13 floors of international media news outlets, including Al Jazeera, the Associated Press and AFP.

The tower also housed a number of medical offices, law offices, Internet service offices and residential homes, which were razed to the ground by Israeli warplanes and drones.

Pictures published in the media show that the Israeli regime's air attack on the tower has led to its complete destruction.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health announced on Saturday that at least 139 Palestinians, including 39 children are martyred and more than 950 others, have been injured in a new round of Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip since last Monday.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque and its neighboring area, especially the Bab al-Amoud neighborhood, have been the scene of Israeli militant attacks on Palestinians in recent days.

As Palestinians protest against the Israeli plan has increased, Israeli militant attacks and clashes with Palestinian protesters have intensified too. 219
