GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian journalist who was injured when Israel shelled his Shujaiyya home succumbed to his wounds on Thursday, the ninth journalist to be killed by Israeli forces since the assault on Gaza began three weeks ago.

Muhammad Daher, who worked for al-Resalah newspaper, was injured in the shelling while a number of his family members were killed.

The target of the attack was unclear, but Israel has repeatedly destroyed entire apartment buildings in order to kill wanted individuals.

The Israeli assault has taken a high toll on Palestinian journalists, as seemingly haphazard shelling of residential and commercial areas have killed many, including 17 shoppers in a Shujaiyya market and 16 internally displaced people at a UN school on Wednesday.

Photojournalists Rami Rayan and Sameh al-Aryan, who worked with al-Aqsa TV, were killed Wednesday during the shelling of al-Bastat market in Shujaiyya.

Journalist Ahed Zaqqut, who focused on sports media for several agencies, was also killed Wednesday.

Journalists Najlaa Mahmoud al-Hajj, Abd al-Rahman Ziyad Abu Hayin, Izzat Dhuheir, Bahad al-Din Gharib, and photojournalist Khalid Hamad were also killed in earlier strikes on the Gaza Strip.
