The home of an Al Jazeera reporter was hit by an Israeli air strike, killing the family’s father. The network accuses Israel of deliberately targeting the journalist’s home.

On Monday, Israel planned to attack an area in the northern Gaza Strip and reportedly ordered residents of the area to evacuate. Journalist Anas Al-Sharif’s home was in the area, but his father was unable to evacuate before the attack due to his poor health. The rest of the family reportedly managed to evacuate to a nearby school.

– My beloved father has become a martyr. To God we belong and to Him we shall return, Al-Sharif said.

Qatar TV condemned the attack in a statement, calling on the international community to take immediate action against Israel’s brutal assault.

Calls on the world to intervene

“The Network expresses its deepest condolences to our colleague Anas and his family. Al Jazeera urges the international community and humanitarian organisations to urgently intervene and halt the Israeli occupation forces’ brutal targeting of both journalists and civilians in the Gaza Strip”, it said.

Al-Sharif is the fourth journalist from the station to lose family members in Israeli attacks. Several Palestinian journalists have also been killed since the conflict began on October 7.

But the journalist says that despite the circumstances, he will continue to report on the ongoing war.

– But despite all of this, and despite the targeting of my home and the killing of my father, I will continue to cover from Jabalia refugee camp and from northern Gaza, he said.
