One person has been confirmed killed after a large explosion shook a central Gaza building used by local and foreign media, including Sky News Arabia.
Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad said the dead man was Ramaz Harab, one of its senior commanders.
Israel Defence Forces (IDF) later said it had targeted a “hideout” used by senior operatives from Islamic Jihad. It named four individuals, including Ramaz Harab, who were in the building and said they had been involved in firing rockets at Israel.
Health officials said several others were wounded in the attack, which is the second strike on the building in two days.
