Hamas slams ‘barbaric’ airstrike on Gaza City building

Hamas spokesman Hazim Qassim says on Facebook: “The occupation’s deliberate bombardment and destruction of cultural centers…are barbaric acts that belong to the Dark Ages.”

Qassim is referring to an Israeli airstrike earlier this evening that demolished a five-story building in Gaza City that was used as a cultural center — but also, according to Israel, as the headquarters of Hamas’s internal security service. It also housed an entrance to an underground attack tunnel, Israel says.
