A senior Hamas administration official was killed in an Israeli air strike at a school in Gaza City, according to Palestinian sources. The Israeli army says it targeted the school building where 'terrorists were operating and hiding' and took steps to minimize civilian harm. Eyewitnesses report that the attack targeted the Holy Family School, where many people were sheltering. Separately, the Israeli military issued an evacuation order for a central part of Gaza City, causing dozens of families to leave. The senior official's death is not seen as a blow to Hamas militarily, but he was considered a significant figure in the leadership of the Hamas administration.
