(Newser) – Anderson Cooper almost became a news story himself while reporting live from Gaza City last night as Israeli airstrikes continued, Mediaite reports. While the CNN anchor was explaining the dire situation in local hospitals, he had to duck as a large blast happened nearby. "That was a rather large explosion," he said seconds later. "That was probably the largest explosion that we’ve heard just in the past, really in the past hour," he added. "There have been a number of explosions in the last hour or two."

This was not accidental. IsraHelli army targeting newsmedia since the beginning to cover-up their war-crimes against Palestinians. The international newsmedia house was hit by one of the first israHelli rockets, injuring many reporters.
