Israel’s Air Force struck a building in the Gaza Strip that it said housed armed militants.

The Palestinians hiding in the building in the central Gaza Strip on Thursday had planted explosives earlier in the day and planned to shoot at Israeli soldiers, according to an Israel Defense Forces statement.

The militants returned fire. A direct hit on the building was confirmed, according to the military.

Two bombs detonated in the same area Wednesday in an attempt to harm Israeli troops on patrol along the Gaza border fence with Israel, the IDF said.
