Drone footage raises questions about Israeli justification for deadly strike on Gaza journalists

JERUSALEM - On Jan. 7, the Israeli military conducted a targeted missile strike on a car carrying four Palestinian journalists outside Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

Two members of an Al Jazeera crew - Hamza Dahdouh, 27, and drone operator Mustafa Thuraya, 30 - were killed, along with their driver. Two freelance journalists were seriously wounded.

They were returning from the scene of an earlier Israeli strike on a building, where they had used a drone to capture the aftermath. The drone - a consumer model available at Best Buy - would be central to the Israeli justification for the strike.
