Israel Demolished Tower Blocks in Gaza. Here’s What They Housed
According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, citing Palestinian government sources, as of Monday the ongoing air war in Gaza has led to the destruction of 94 buildings, comprising 461 housing and commercial units.
Jerusalem has claimed that its forces have targeted military targets embedded in civilian neighborhoods and has announced strikes on the homes of senior Hamas commanders, a Hamas operations center in the Gaza City neighborhood of Rimal and a tunnel shaft in the Khan Yunis area “located adjacent to a kindergarten, a mosque and a hospital.”
However, a series of strikes against high-rise buildings in Gaza City, several of them containing the offices of media outlets, has led to widespread distrust of the Israeli narrative and condemnations by human rights and media advocacy organizations.
