Israel gave inhabitants a 10-minute warning before it destroyed the building, which was evacuated. There were no injuries.
Abu Obeida, the spokesman for Hamas’ military wing, promised a harsh response.
“Tel Aviv must stand on one foot and wait for our earth-shattering response,” he said.
In past rounds of fighting, Israel has destroyed Gaza high-rises, claiming they were used by militants, but destroying offices and leaving scores of people homeless. That included the building that housed The Associated Press bureau in a 2021 war
