GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian infant was killed in an Israeli airstrike on central Gaza Sunday morning, medics said.

The strike on al-Bureij refugee camp killed 18-month-old Eyad Abu Khousa and wounded his brother, a Ma'an correspondent said

He was the third child to die in a morning as airstrikes continued unabated in the Gaza Strip.

Two children were killed and more than 12 people injured as two houses were bombed in northern Gaza early Sunday, a Gaza official Ashraf al-Qidra said

Medics identified the two children as Tamer Abu Asaifan and one-year-old Jumana Abu Asaifan.

Witnesses said Israel's aerial bombardment of Gaza continued with intensity overnight.

Airstrikes hit two media headquarters in Gaza City, including Ma'an's office, injuring six journalists.

Israeli shelling pummeled Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza, while fighter jets struck southern Gaza. Meanwhile, Israeli gunboats shelled the coastline of Gaza City and central Gaza, eyewitnesses said.

Israel's military said military jets fired on approximately 70 sites in the Gaza Strip overnight.

No rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel after midnight on Saturday, the army said, until several projectiles hit the south after 8 a.m.

Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi had said on Saturday there were "some indications" a ceasefire could be reached soon between Israel and Gaza Palestinians but he had no firm guarantees.

Some 50 Palestinians have been killed and hundreds injured since the assault began on Wednesday. Three Israelis were killed by a Gaza rocket on Thursday.

both parties of this paranoid "war" should slow down. No one who believes in a god( not important what name he has) can fight if kids are injured or killed

Why is there still a refugee camp if Gaza is no longer occupied?? Why are there still refugee camps 65 years later??
