GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Eleven Palestinians were killed and dozens were injured when an Israeli airstrike hit a home in the central Gaza Strip, a health ministry spokesman said.

Ashraf al-Qidra said in a statement that an Israeli airstrike hit the al-Bayoumi family home in al-Nusairat refugee camp, killing at least 11 and injuring at least 45.

It was not immediately clear what the target of the strike was, and an Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an she was looking into the incident.

No further information was immediately available.

Some 79 Palestinians have been killed so far on Thursday, the 24th day of the Israeli offensive on Gaza.
