Palestinian media reports say a five-story building in Gaza City has been struck by Israeli fighter jets.

The airstrike comes after a “knock on roof” warning drone strike, aimed at allowing people in the building to flee, the reports say.

There are no immediate reports of injuries.

Israel has said it is carrying out strikes on targets linked to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group.

The Hamas-run Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip said earlier that 11 people have been killed and 80 wounded in Israeli airstrikes on the enclave which began yesterday. The ministry says a 5-year-old girl is among the dead.
