At least nine people were injured on Tuesday morning as Israel continued to launch airstrikes on the Gaza strip, according to Palestinian officials.
Several airstrikes hit the city of Khan Younis overnight.
The wounded were taken to the city's Naseer Hospital, where they were treated for light and moderate injuries.
A separate airstrike hit Gaza City.
It targeted an empty building which had previously been the Palestinian Authority's Intelligence headquarters and it is now controlled by the Islamic militant group Hamas.
The Israeli military has said the airstrikes in the Gaza strip are targeting militants involved in firing rockets at Israel.
Retaliatory Palestinian rocket attacks and Israeli airstrikes have intensified over the past week.
