Israeli airstrikes caused significant damage to a large refugee camp in Jabalia, just north of Gaza City, on Tuesday. The Israeli military confirms it was targeting the area, which it says is a Hamas “stronghold,” including underground tunnels and a command center.

Photos from the scene showed large craters and other damage at the camp, where teams of people lined up bodies in rows, covered by white sheets. Hamas officials said at least six airstrikes demolished apartment buildings in the residential area.

A precise number of casualties and injuries isn’t yet known; initial reports from the health ministry in Gaza said a large number of people were wounded or killed.
