BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Foreign Press Association in Israel said Sunday it was concerned by Israeli military attacks on media offices in Gaza City overnight.

Two media complexes were hit by airstrikes, injuring eight journalists, the FPA said in a statement.

FPA members Sky News, and Sky News Arabia, MBC TV, Al Arabiya, ORF have worked from these locations, as well as other European broadcasters, the FPA said.

The coalition of foreign journalists noted that countries with media groups in the targeted buildings are members of the UN Security Council, which has adopted resolution 1738 condemning attacks against journalists in conflict situations.

The statement quoted the resolution: "Unanimously adopting resolution 1738 (2006), the Council recalled, without prejudice to the war correspondents’ right to the status of prisoners of war under the Third Geneva Convention, that journalists, media professionals and associated personnel engaged in dangerous professional missions in areas of armed conflict shall be considered civilians, to be respected and protected as such."
