Two Israeli air raids targeted a media building in Gaza Sunday morning including Al Aribiya's office, reported the channel's correspondent.
The 12-story building, which included offices of Arab and Western media outlets, was extensively damaged, according to Al Aribiya's correspondent, who ensured that there were no gunmen or militants at the site.
The Israeli air strike on Gaza City's media building injured at least six journalists at the building, as a separate raid in northern Gaza killed two people, Palestinian medical sources said.
"At least six journalists were wounded, with minor and moderate injuries when Israelis warplanes hit the al-Quds TV office in the Showa and Housari building in the Rinal neighborhood of Gaza City," health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra told AFP.
Witnesses said journalists had evacuated after an initial strike, which was followed by at least two more on the site.
The injured were taken to Gaza City's Shifa hospital. One journalist lost his leg in the attack, Qudra said.
An Israeli air strike on central Gaza killed an 18-month-old Palestinian child and wounded his two young brothers on Sunday, an emergency service spokesman told AFP.
"An 18-month-old baby was killed in a strike east of Bureij refugee camp in Central Gaza," spokesman Adham Abu Selmiya told AFP, naming the toddler as Iyyad Abu Khusa.
The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the strike, which took place several hours after two other people were killed in separate sir strikes on the northern towns of Beit Hanun and Beit Lahiya.
Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi said on Saturday there were "indications" that Hamas and Israel could reach "a ceasfire soon."
