The Israeli military refuted on Sunday a Hamas claim that it had bombed a playground in the Gaza Strip the previous day.

In reality, a video published by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) unit said, the target of the air strike in question was a high-rise building used by Hamas for terrorist training activities — including urban warfare drills and soldier kidnapping simulations.

“When Hamas terrorists conduct exercises next to a children’s park, this proves they do not care about them,” the video said.
