TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel's army revealed on Sunday that a building housing elite soldiers preparing for a possible ground invasion was struck by a rocket last Tuesday, Hebrew daily Maariv reported.

One soldier was injured in the incident, which Israel's army cleared for publication over the weekend, and dozens of elite soldiers were evacuated from the Eshkol building, the Israeli daily reported.

Israel's eight day military assault on the Gaza Strip killed some 170 Palestinians and injured over 1,000 people.
