Israeli Air Strike Destroys 11-Story Residential Building in Gaza

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip) -- An Israeli air strike leveled an 11-story residential building in Gaza City late Saturday night.

The Israeli Defense Forces believe that the building was home to multiple control and command centers operated by Hamas militants. The IDF also says that it dropped leaflets earlier on Saturday asking residents to leave the area, as well as firing a "warning shot" prior to the strike.

Still, Palestinian medical sources say at least 20 people were reportedly injured in the attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Gazans on Sunday to stay away from all locations operated by Hamas, as Israeli will continue to target them.
