Palestinian media in the Gaza Strip report that seven people, including several children, were killed, in an Israeli airstrike that hit a house in the Gaza Strip’s al-Shati refugee camp.
Several people are also reported trapped under rubble.
The reports say some of the children are from the same family.
Terrorists in Gaza have launched a heavy barrage of rockets into Israel, saying it was in response to the al-Shati strike.
Urgent: The only Palestinian child who survived in the family in the Shati refugee camp, west of Gaza, after Israeli aircraft were completely targeted. The entire family was martyred, and this child remains alone now!!! ????????#GazzaUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/Z4ZF4Dhb0v

There is no immediate response from the IDF, which said earlier that it continues to target rocket launching sites.
Israel claims that several cases of civilian casualties in Gaza were caused by Palestinian rockets falling short. It also accuses terror groups of launching rockets from densely populated civilian areas.
