    GAZA (Reuters) - A Reuters cameraman was killed in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday in what appeared to be an Israeli military strike.

    Fadel Shana, 23, was covering events in the enclave for the international news agency on a day of intense violence when 16 other Palestinians and three Israeli soldiers were also killed.

    Two youths passing by died in the same explosion that killed Shana, witnesses said. The cameraman had stepped from his car to film an Israeli tank dug in several hundred meters (yards) away.

    Video from Shana's camera showed the tank opening fire. Two seconds after the shot raises dust around its gun, the tape goes blank -- seemingly at the moment Shana was hit.

    Reuters soundman Wafa Abu Mizyed, 25, sustained a shrapnel wound and was being treated in a Gaza hospital.

    I'm sorry for his family.

    It's a shame people die in war zones.

    It is also a shame when we ally ourselves with parties who are obviously committing war crimes. Oh, am I anti-semetic for feeling compassion for the Palestinian civilians?

    Absolutely disgusting. How will Jillian justify the Israeli atrocity this time?

    Before I even discussed my opinion with you, you'd have to find the intelligence to acknowledge that kadusha missiles shouldn't be flying into Israel.

    Until then, you can use your lack of knowledge on this subject to make Shogie feel like he has a fan club.
