Official reports society building sustained major damage.
According to reliable sources, the building that houses both the Palestinian Bible Society and Teacher's Bookshop and is located in downtown Gaza City has been hit by a missile. The shop is a ministry of the PBS.

The bookshop has not been open since the murder of the shop manager, Rami Ayyad, in October 2007. This building of the Bible Society is a different building than the Gaza Baptist structure, which received some collateral damage after Israeli forces attacked the police station across the street from Gaza Baptist.
