Israel demolishes third Gaza high-rise after warning occupants to leave

Israeli fighter jets have demolished al-Shourouk tower in Gaza City, after repeatedly warning those inside to leave.

This is the third high-rise building, containing more than 10 stories, to be destroyed by the Israel Defense Forces in this current round of fighting.

Such towers are said to house various commanders in Gaza terror groups.

According to Gaza news outlets, the security manager of the building was told to evacuate the structure and it was hit by a number of so-called “knock on the roof” attacks, in which non-explosive missiles are dropped on a building to warn those inside to exit, before larger bombs dropped by fighter jets destroyed the building.
