MOSCOW: Fulfilling orders, a convoy of warships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet arrived in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea for a possible evacuation of Russian citizens from the Gaza Strip in case of an escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli armed conflict, a source in the High Command of the Russian Navy told Itar-Tass on Friday.

“The guards missile-carrying cruiser Moskva and the big landing ship Saratov have arrived in the designated area already on November 20, the border patrol ship Smetlivy and the big landing ship Novocherkassk joined the foresaid warships 1-2 days later, after the refuelling from the big sea tanker Ivan Bubnov. The full convoy of the warships of the Black Sea Fleet arrived in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea in order to evacuate Russian citizens from the Gaza Strip in case of escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict,” the Russian naval source said.

“It is not ruled out that our warships will be assigned for another combat mission in case of deterioration of the regional situation,” the source in the High Command of the Russian Navy told Itar-Tass. However, the source did not specify what mission in concrete can be set for Russian warships.

Earlier attacks heavily damaged two buildings that housed Sky News, Italian RAI, German ARD and Kuwait TV, as well as the Hamas TV station Al Aqsa. Some of the injured were from Ma'an news agency, and a cameraman for al-Quds TV had to have his leg amputated. RT's office in Gaza was affected too. The attack came after the office of Iran's English-language Press TV channel in Gaza was hit twice in the Israeli aerial assaults.
The buildings were heavily damaged.
The International Federation of Journalists has demanded the UN hold an investigation of the deliberate attacks of the Israeli military by media buildings in Gaza and take action against Israel.
The Middle East Foreign Press Association demanded an explanation as to why media buildings are targeted.
The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) explained that they are targeting Hamas militants, 'and the journalists who are not journalists who spread propaganda for Hamas'.

On May 7, 1999, NATO fired 3 missiles from different angles to attack the Embassy of China in Yugoslavia, which killed 3 Chinese journalists and injured more than 20. The building of the embassy was seriously damaged. U.S. officials and NATO said the attack on the Chinese Embassy was "a mistake" based on "faulty information".

The bombings of TV channels and embassies prove what 'Defence Organization' NATO and its allies mean with 'democracy'.

The website of the Syrian Arab News Agency SANA is regularly blocked by Washington that doesn't want a political solution and doesn't stop its financial and military aid to terrorist groups.
C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. Weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries to Syria.
