A 12-year-old Palestinian boy has been killed in a third successive day of Israeli strikes on Gaza, according to local medical sources.
Another person was injured. It brings to 17 the number of dead in the Israeli bombardment since Friday.
The death of a Palestinian militant whose car was targeted by Israeli forces in Gaza City has sparked the worst violence the area has seen for almost a year, with Israel on the receiving end of sustained rocket attacks.
The Israeli army confirmed strikes have been carried out and said it was checking reports that a boy had died.
He's said to have been killed in northern Gaza. A Palestinian militant reportedly died in a separate attack.
The escalating violence has brought calls for a ceasefire from the UN, the EU, the Palestinian Authority and Egypt.
