Gaza - Israeli aircraft bombed a multi-storey building in Gaza City on Thursday, local residents said, a few hours after Palestinian militants fired a long-range rocket at Israel’s largest southern city.

At least four people were hurt in the air strike, health officials said. An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment. The explosion shook buildings in Gaza City as dust and grey smoke filled the air, a Reuters witness said.

Israel’s military on Thursday warned Hamas against further escalation in violence, and Israeli media said officials were considering evacuating residents from areas near the Gaza border.

“The way things continue to play out is significant. Hamas will understand in the coming hours, as in the past months, that this is not the direction it wants to chose,” a senior military official was quoted as saying on the military’s Twitter account.

Israeli officials said Netanyahu was due to hold the security cabinet session later in the day after consultations with security officials.

“Hamas has been hit hard. Israel will keep acting with force. The Prime Minister and Defence Minister have instructed the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) to prepare for all possibilities,” an Israeli official said after the first round of consultations.

Rocket warning sirens sounded almost non-stop in the southern Israeli towns and border communities near Gaza from sunset on Wednesday. Many residents have a reinforced room in their homes where they can shelter. The military said more than 180 rockets and mortar bombs were fired from Gaza.

How about some apartment buildings? Until these animals see major loss of life, they will never stop their obsession with terror.

, the buildings are empty now. At least we have someone strong in the White House now that stands of Israel and stands strong against crime. Unlike the former monkey in the White House that spoke out of two sides of his mouth and gave Iran billions of dollars. You could care less if every Jew was wiped out. They should ban you from commenting on this site.
