Hospital says Israeli strike on Gaza camp kills 29

No less than 29 Palestinians have been killed and dozens wounded in an Israeli air strike on a camp for displaced people outside a school in southern Gaza, hospital officials say.

Gaza’s health ministry said the strike hit next to the gate of al-Awda school in Abasan al-Kabira, a town east of the city of Khan Younis, and put the initial death toll at 25. The school houses displaced people from the eastern villages of Khan Younis.

The Israeli military said it was looking into the reports, which come a week after it ordered civilians to evacuate Abasan al-Kabira and other areas in eastern Khan Younis, prompting tens of thousands to flee.
