Smoke rises after an Israeli strike in Gaza on Sunday. The Israeli military widened its range of targets in the Gaza Strip to include the media operations of the Palestinian territory’s Hamas rulers, sending its aircraft to attack two buildings used by both Hamas and foreign media outlets.

Israeli forces killed at least 11 people, including several children, in a single airstrike that destroyed a Gaza City home on Sunday, as Israel pressed its bombardment of the Gaza Strip for a fifth day, deploying warplanes and naval vessels to pummel the coastal enclave.
