Israel's killing of two Palestinian journalists and attacks on media facilities during its Gaza offensive last month violated the laws of war, Human Rights Watch said on Thursday.

Two cameramen working for al-Aqsa TV, a station affiliated with Gaza's Hamas-run government, were killed by Israeli air strikes on their car on November 20.

Israeli planes also bombed a tower block housing many of Gaza's local and international media offices, in attacks that Israel said at the time targeted the communications infrastructure and personnel of militant groups.

"Just because Israel says a journalist was a fighter or a TV station was a command center does not make it so," Sarah Leah Witson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement released by the New York-based organization.
