The Palestinians alleged that the IAF was targeting what Israel believed was a hideout used by a senior Islamic Jihad operative, but hit a residential building by mistake, injuring dozens of innocent people.
However, the IDF's footage shows a truckload of weapons being delivered to the building. The IDF stressed that the precision fire ensured that the building did not collapse – as reported by the Palestinians.
The footage also clearly shows residual blasts caused by the munitions stored in the building.
The IDF stressed that any strike was carefully planned to avoid any harm to innocent civilians.
