Israeli aircraft hit Hamas bank HQ in Gaza
GAZA CITY (AP) - Israeli aircraft have battered the headquarters of the Gaza Strip bank set up by Hamas rulers to sidestep international sanctions.
Tuesday's strike on the Islamic National Bank in Gaza City is part of a widening Israeli onslaught against the militants and their rocket squads targeting Israel. The offensive is now in its seventh day.
The inside of the bank was destroyed, and a building supply business in the basement was damaged.
The bank's 31-year-old owner, Mr Suleiman Tawil, denounced the strike, saying he is not "involved in politics."
