The BBC's Gaza correspondent Jon Donnison was reporting live from the region when multiple missiles hit close by, targeted at a football pitch, which is close to the Gaza offices of Al-Jazeera.

The Yarmouk football pitch is believed to have been used by Palestinian militants to fire rockets into southern Israel.

Witnesses reported that around 10 strikes hit the venue and the surrounding area.

In the aftermath of a bomb planted on a bus in Tel Aviv, injuring 15 Israeli civilians, more raids have been carried out on the Israel Defence Force's targets in Gaza. No-one has yet officially claimed responsibility for the attack.

Another building in central Gaza, housing media offices including Agence France Presse was also hit by an second air strike.

The hit on the journalists' offices comes a day after the first Israeli strike hit the media headquarters in Gaza, which the IDF said had housed Hamas intelligence operations.

More than 130 Palestinians have already died in the week-long conflict, along with four Israelis.

The IDF is also reported to have hit another building in Gaza, an office building allegedly used by Islamic Jihad. The BBC reported that a six-year-old boy was killed in the attack and two others have been wounded.

Overnight, the home of Issam Al Da'slees, top aide of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, was reduced to rubble after it was hit by an Israeli air strike on the Nuseirat Refugee Camp.

The Palestinian Ma'an news agency said shelling had intensified since the bus bombing.

At least three homes were destroyed in airstrikes on al-Nuseirat refugee camp, and further south a bridge connecting northern and southern Gaza was bombed. Huge fires erupted around Rafah in southern Gaza as Israel hit tunnels in the area 23 times.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said 32 people died overnight, with 304 injured.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported Palestinian sources in Cairo saying a long-awaited ceasefire will not be announced on Wednesday, because Israel refuses to include the lifting of the blockade as a term in the truce agreement.
