One woman was killed and 46 others were wounded Friday afternoon when F-16 fighters bombed the old building of the interior ministry near the Islamic university, according to reports from Gaza.

The bombing resulted in the complete destruction of the five-storey unused building and caused great damage to surrounding homes.

Medical sources told PIC correspondent that a 58-year-old woman died of shrapnel wounds and 46 others, all civilians were wounded, at least five of them sustained serious wounds.

Local sources said that an F-16 fighter fired two rockets at the building bringing it down and causing great damage to nearby buildings.

There was a wedding party at the house of Abdel-Jawad family adjacent to the bombed building,  and the bombing caused the death of Ms. Haneya Abdel-Jawad and the wounding of many wedding guests, including young children.

The wounded were taken to the Shifa hospital where the less seriously wounded had to sit on the floor because of lack of hospital beds.

Security sources said the Israeli occupation knows very well that the targeted building is within a densely populated area and that targeting it would result in a large number of civilian casualties.
Spokesman for the Interior Ministry Ihab al-Ghusain said that his ministry has evacuated the building a long time ago and was handed back to the owners.

Two Naval Police Stations were also bombed and destroyed, but no casualties were reported.
