Hammas fires rockets from inside the Al Arabiya news studio building

Why Israel fired on a news bureau building in Gaza. The Weekly Standard:
But we have at least one confirmed incident of Hamas's launching rockets from a media headquarters: Al Arabiya reporter Hannan al-Masri is live on the air in Gaza when she is told that Hamas has just fired rockets from inside the Al Arabiya studio building, news which apparently strikes her as quite humorous. Watch the video below and turn on the subtitles feature. The first laugh might be dismissed as nervous laughter, but the second one can't. She is clearly amused by the launch. If the Israeli Air Force responded by striking the building housing Al Arabiya, it would have been completely justified in doing so.
