The Israeli army has confirmed striking a multi-storey building in the Gaza Strip, where the offices of the international media have been dispersed.

According to the Associated Press, the attack on the building occurred in the afternoon, after the owner received a call from the Israeli military, warning that the building would be hit. 

AP personnel and others in the building were immediately evacuated. As a result of the impact, the entire structure collapsed. There was no direct explanation for the attack.

According to RIA Novosti, clarifications came later. The Israeli military said they attacked the building because it contained military equipment belonging to the Hamas intelligence services. And the offices of the media, according to the Israeli military, were used by Hamas as human shields.

The Associated Press also notes that shortly before that, the Israeli military attacked the refugee camp, and then there was no warning.
