Israel's military says the tower block housed assets belonging to the Hamas militant group, which has been denied by the building's landlord. In addition, at least 10 people, including eight children, are killed in an Israeli airstrike on a refugee camp in Gaza, officials say. We hear from a neighbour of the family killed in the strike. Hamas responds by firing dozens of rockets at cities in Israel, killing one man near Tel Aviv. We also hear from the international spokesman for the Israeli Defence Forces.
