Palestinian security sources and eyewitnesses report that Israeli military aircraft raided the Bureij Refugee Camp in the Gaza Strip at dawn on Wednesday. Sources say that the Israeli military was targeting a house in the center of the camp belonging to the Albotran family.
The Israeli warplanes conducted air strikes in the neighborhood, dropping large rockets on the house in question. When the ordeal was over, the house had been completely demolished. Fortunately, no one was injured in the attack.
Security sources told PNN that the Israeli troops had informed the occupants of the house to evacuate only a half an hour before the attack began. In an attempt to avoid further loss of civilian life that would produce more public relations disasters. The Israeli military has recently adopted a policy of warning civilians before destroying their homes.
