ImageTEHRAN, Jan 9 (Reuters) – An Iranian state television station said two people were wounded by an Israeli rocket strike on the building housing its office in Gaza on Friday.

"Israeli rocket strikes Gaza media building, wounding two," Press TV said in a breaking news headline, after initially reporting no casualties in the incident.

"Israeli forces have targeted Press TV and al-Alam television stations in the Gaza Strip," the English-language satellite station said. Al-Alam is Iran's Arab-language television station.

An Israeli military spokesperson said the building had not been targeted, though it may have sustained "collateral damage".

Equipment, including satellite transmission devices installed on the roof, was damaged, Press TV said on its website. It did not identify the wounded or say if other media outlets were based in the same building.

A Press TV news presenter said Israel knew the building's coordinates and had given assurances it would not be attacked. Its website said staff had kept light projectors working on the roof of the building to mark it.

Iran has condemned Israel's 14-day-old offensive against Gaza, which Israel said it launched to end rocket attacks by the Palestinian militant group Hamas on southern Israel.

Israel has accused Iran of supplying arms to Hamas. Tehran, which does not recognise the Jewish state, says it gives moral, financial and humanitarian support to its Palestinian ally.
