Israeli military kills 23 in 'single deadliest attack' on Gaza since operation began 

Israelis dashed for bomb shelters as sirens warning of incoming rocket fire blared in Tel Aviv and the southern city of Beersheba. Around 10 people were injured while running for shelters, medics said.

At least 170 people have been killed in Gaza since the violence began on Monday, including more than 40 children, health officials said. Israel has reported 10 dead, including two children.

Envoys from the United States, United Nations and Egypt were working to restore calm but have yet to show any signs of progress. 

The UN Security Council is due to meet later on Sunday to discuss the worst outbreak of Israeli-Palestinian violence in years.

Both Israel and Hamas have insisted they would continue their cross-border fire, a day after Israel destroyed a 12-storey building in Gaza City that had housed the US Associated Press and Qatar-based Al Jazeera media operations.

The Israel military said the al-Jala building was a legitimate military target, containing Hamas military offices, and that it had given warnings to civilians to get out of the building before the attack.

The AP condemned the attack, and asked Israel to put forward evidence. "We have had no indication Hamas was in the building or active in the building," the news organisation said.

In what it called a reprisal for Israel's destruction of the al-Jala building, Hamas fired rockets at Tel Aviv and towns in southern Israel early on Sunday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said late on Saturday that Israel was "still in the midst of this operation, it is still not over and this operation will continue as long as necessary."

In a burst of air strikes early on Sunday, Israel targeted the home of Yehya Al-Sinwar, who since 2017 has headed the political and military wings of Hamas in Gaza, the group's TV station said.

Another air strike killed a Gaza neurologist and wounded his wife and daughter, Palestinian medics and relatives said.

The Israeli military flattened several buildings in Gaza and killed up to 33 people in its single deadliest attack on the Strip since the conflict began on Monday. 

Early on Sunday, the Israel Defence Forces [IDF] bombarded al-Wehda street in Gaza City, which injured a further 50 people and led to several being trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings, according to Palestinian witnesses. 

Rescue efforts to retrieve survivors and the victims' remains were ongoing, Palestinian medics said, adding that five children had been pulled alive from the rubble. 

It came as Israel bombed the home of Hamas's chief in Gaza early on Sunday and the Islamist group fired rocket barrages at Tel Aviv as hostilities stretched into a seventh day with no sign of abating.

Palestinian officials said the latest round of attacks had raised the death toll on their side to 181, including 52 children, while in Israel ten people have been killed by Hamas rocket attacks.
