Israeli fighter jets on Saturday bombed the Qatar-funded Hamad Residential Project in the city of Khan Yunis in the central Gaza Strip.

Shortly before the attack, the Israeli army warned the project's residents via phone calls to evacuate as they had decided to launch a bombardment of the residential project, according to eyewitnesses.

Following Israel's second war on the Gaza Strip in Oct. 2012, Qatar donated approximately $407 million for the enclave reconstruction through the implementation of critical projects such as the Hamad Residential Project.

The Israeli army resumed bombing Gaza early Friday after declaring an end to a week-long humanitarian pause.

At least 193 Palestinians have been killed and 652 injured since Friday in Israeli airstrikes, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

Israel launched relentless air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on Oct. 7.

The official Israeli death toll stands at 1,200.
