Anderson Cooper describes the scene shortly after a Gaza office building is hit by an Israeli strike.
The building in Gaza City housed a center used by some media outlets. Sources tell CNN that journalists inside the building had been warned to leave several hours before the blasts. The same building was also struck on Sunday.
Israeli military forces say the strike targeted four senior Islamic Jihad members who were hiding in the building, including the information chief.
The IDF stated operation details via Twitter.
We targeted only the 2nd floor, which is where the senior terrorists were. The rest of the building was unharmed. Direct hit confirmed.—

Palestinian sources tell CNN that two children were wounded, and at least two people were killed. The sources said that Ramez Harb, information leader of the military media office of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, was among them.
