(Scroll down for video) The Israel Air Force flattened a 13-floor residential apartment building in which Hamas terrorists planned attacks against Israeli civilians.
The attack on Saturday against the Al Zafer Tower, was the first time that Israel had demolished a tall structure.
The building was home to 44 families. The attack was launched a day after a mortar bomb killed an Israeli 4-year-old boy. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin attended the funeral on Sunday, which took place near the Gaza border.
In a school managed by the U.N. in Gaza, Palestinian families and children were singing “Glory and eternity to our martyrs.” Later on Saturday, an Israeli air strike destroyed a shopping center in Rafah.
Three people were injured.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Palestinians to leave areas in which rockets are being launched at Israel.
