- Story Text: An Israeli plane bombed a building that housed the National Production Bank in Gaza City on Friday (May 14), causing explosions that blasted bricks and debris dozens of yards away according to witnesses.
The explosions shattered glass windows and doors at some nearby buildings. Israeli planes bombed two other branches of the bank in the past days.
According to the Times of Israel newspaper, Israel's military were targeting institutions, notably, treasury and banks said to be used by Gaza's ruling Hamas group.
Israel has pummelled Gaza with artillery fire and airstrikes on Friday as it also targeted Palestinian militant tunnels to try to stop persistent rocket attacks on Israeli towns.
