Days of Palestine – Gaza

A 13-story residential block in the Gaza Strip collapsed on Tuesday night after being hit by Israeli airstrikes, witnesses said.

Electricity in the area around the building went out, and residents were using flashlights.

Shortly after the attack, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad group said they would respond by firing rockets at Tel Aviv.

Hours earlier, Israel had sent 80 jets to bomb Gaza and massed tanks on the border as rocket barrages hit Israeli towns for a second day, deepening a conflict in which at least 28 people in the Palestinian enclave have been killed.
