GAZA CITY: Israeli warplanes struck dozens of targets in the Gaza Strip killing three and injuring 18 in a fierce burst of violence overnight and into Thursday morning.

At least three Palestinians died — a pregnant woman, her one-year-old daughter and a Hamas member, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. Israeli and Hamas officials both threatened a further intensification of hostilities.

The UN’s Mideast envoy appealed for calm. At least 18 Palestinians were wounded as Israel struck a building in central Gaza City, the health ministry in the Palestinian enclave said.

The strike hit a building that Palestinians say housed a cultural centre and other offices in the middle of the city, a correspondent said. Israel’s military had not commented.

The Said Meshal Cultural Centre confirmed on its Facebook page the offices in Gaza City had been destroyed, saying the building also hosted offices for the Egyptian community in Gaza.

The building was not publicly known to include facilities for the Hamas. Israel has struck more than 150 Hamas targets since late Wednesday.
