Israeli warplanes destroyed a series of Hamas-controlled targets inside the Gaza Strip Monday following an unprovoked rocket attack that injured seven and destroyed a family’s home outside of Tel Aviv.

“An Israeli airstrike has destroyed a multi-story building in Gaza City that housed a Hamas-affiliated insurance company,” reports the Associated Press.

The Israeli military confirmed the site was “a secret headquarters of the Hamas terror organization” used by the terror network’s intelligence unit.

The United Nations Secretary General said he was “gravely concerned” with the developing situation; with a top spokesperson saying “further escalation is likely to make an already bad situation worse, in particular for civilians in and close to Gaza.”
