An Israeli official said the buildings had housed command and control centers used by Islamic Jihad. The residents were warned and the buildings evacuated before the strikes occurred." The New York Times reported that the IDF targeted "two weapons storage facilities, which it said were located 'in the residences of terrorist operatives in the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip.'" Apparently BBC News website editors preferred a context-free version of the story.
