Note that the death toll has soared to 20 in ongoing Gaza airstrikes with 520 reported injuries, the Palestinian health ministry said on Tuesday.
According to the reports, the victims include nine children. The youngest victim was 10-years-old, Gaza health officials told.
The Israeli military said it struck several Hamas targets in response to continued rocket fire out of Gaza. It said eight sites were struck.
Hamas fired dozens of rockets into Israel, including a barrage that set off air raid sirens as far away as Jerusalem, after almost 300 Palestinians were hurt in violence at Al Aqsa mosque.
Seven members of one family, including three children, were killed in northern Gaza after an explosion whose origins were unknown.
Tensions in Jerusalem have been fuelled by the planned forced expulsions of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood and by an Israeli forces raid on Al Aqsa on one of the holiest nights of Ramadan.
