IDF: I understand that if all goes well, only this building will be bombed.
Palestinian Gaza City Residents: So the surrounding houses will not be affected?
Shortly after the building owner received a call and evacuated, the alarm sounded when the missile struck and an Israeli air strike hit his building.
Palestinian Gaza City Residents: We are residential buildings, what can be bombed? I asked the caller what was inside the building that they needed to hit, and he said he would call me when the bombing was over and tell me why, and I wanted to know why, it was all ordinary apartments and shops.
