The Israeli military fired missiles at a media building in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, causing the building to collapse.
An Israeli military spokesman said that there was a “Hamas military intelligence” facility in the building that was shot. He said that before the military, the personnel in the building had been notified in advance and that they had enough time to evacuate the building.
It is reported that the Associated Press and Al Jazeera (Al Jazeera) offices are located in the building. Reuters said the building owner had received the news before the missile attack, and the people in the building had already been evacuated.
In addition to the media office, there are also some residential units and other offices in the building.
