According to Reuters, The military claimed that some of these buildings were used as training sites for the attack that Hamas launched against Israel on October 7, which killed 1,200 Israelis and captured more than 240 hostages, who were taken to Gaza.
The Israeli offensive, which began with airstrikes and naval bombardment, and later escalated to a ground invasion, has killed more than 11,180 Palestinians, wounded 28,200, left 3,000 missing and displaced more than 1.5 million in Gaza, where 46 Israeli soldiers have also died.
Israel says it is targeting Hamas’s rocket launchers, tunnels and command centers, but has also hit civilian infrastructure, such as hospitals, schools and power plants. The United Nations and several countries have called for an immediate ceasefire, but the prospects of a diplomatic solution remain bleak.
