The IDF struck a building housing two international media outlets early Sunday morning, hours after striking another building housing a number of media outlets, the affected media outlets reported. Six journalists were injured in the first strike but no injuries were reported in the second strike.

Sky News Arabia and Al-Arabiya said their offices were hit in the second strike.

The first strike hit a building housing Palestinian Ma'an and Al Quds television stations. Five Al Quds employees and one freelancer were injured in that strike. Iran's PressTV later said the sixth injury was one of its cameramen.

The IDF said the first strike targeted a rooftop "transmission antenna used by Hamas to carry out terror activity."

Reuters contributed to this report.
