Then there was the Hanadi Tower, the tallest building in Gaza, with 13 storeys, which was hit yesterday. Israel claims militants were living there, but even if so they obviously do not care about the other residents.
According to Channel 12 and an UNRWA official, prior to the strike people in the building received several warnings, including phone calls and messages, telling them to leave and a preliminary “roof-knocking” strike — using a small missile to strike the roof with minimal damage in order to cause all inside to leave before a major strike.
A 13-storey residential tower in the Gaza Strip hit by an Israeli airstrike collapsed soon afterwards, witnesses said. It housed an office used by the Hamas political leadership. Residents and people living nearby had been warned to leave an hour before the strike.
