“Hey your house is going to be bombed.” “Will it be bombed in front or behind?” “That I don’t know…” the above conversation took place between the Israeli military and a Palestinian resident of Gaza on the 13th. It is reported that shortly after the Palestinian man was called and evacuated, his house was destroyed by an Israeli air strike; the Israeli army then issued a statement saying that the building housed the Hamas (حماس, Ḥamās) intelligence agency.
In the aftermath of the airstrike, the original occupants and businesses in the building waded through the rubble, trying to find some items that were still usable.
