Israel has denied targeting foreign media in Gaza after the Israeli Defence Forces released a video of an airstrike on media buildings; it says it was aiming for Hamas communication sites.

Military planes struck two media centres on Sunday - the al-Shawa building and the al-Shuruq building. Broadcasters based there include Sky News, al-Arabiya, al-Quds television, Dubai TV and al-Aqsa TV. Eight people were injured in the attacks.

Sky News Middle East Correspondent Sam Kiley was in the offices when they were hit. "I think what happened to us just illustrates in a general sense that no one in Gaza can feel safe," he said.
