Health officials in Gaza said the building was empty, but two Palestinians aged 15 and 16, among a crowd in a nearby public park, were killed.

They also demand an end to Israel's 11-year blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has gutted the coastal territory's economy and deprived its roughly two million inhabitants of many basic commodities.

An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment, but said its actions would depend on what happens on the ground.

In a warning to the terrorist organization that runs Gaza, Netanyhu said: "It is important that Hamas understand that it faces an iron wall and this wall is comprised, first of all, of a determined government, of strong local leadership and Zionist settlement, and that we will continue to strengthen it and - of course - the IDF". "The activity we are engaged in now sends a message that Israel will not tolerate rockets, explosive devices, mortar bombs or (incendiary) kites", Katz said on Israel's Channel 12 TV.

Netanyahu said that the recent confrontation led to the destruction of tunnels and sites for Hamas, adding that the army was instructed to eliminate the phenomenon of "planes and burning" balloons and that this task is under implementation.

The UN and Gisha, the Legal Centre for Freedom of Movement, called Israel's latest measure an act of "collective punishment". The United Nations envoy arrived in the Gaza Strip earlier on Sunday and stressed the urgent need to protect Palestinian children against the ongoing Israeli violence.

Palestinians protesting along the Gaza border have begun attaching Molotov cocktails to kites to fly over the fence into Israel in a new tactic as demonstrations enter their sixth week. The protests have called for Palestinian refugees to return to their former homes now inside Israel.

At least eight large fires burned in southern Israel near the border with Gaza on Monday. In the ensuing eight-day flare-up, 177 Palestinians and six Israelis were killed. No Israelis have been killed.

In response, Israeli army artillery stationed on the border bombarded a military facility in northern Gaza, with no injuries reported, said local media and security sources.

"Further, the worldwide community has the responsibility to act immediately and meet the expectations not only of providing aid to the people of Gaza, but of designing a political path to move forward", he said, and key allies in this effort would be the Palestinian people in Gaza themselves.

This step in only one in several other measures Israel has taken in the last few days to further strangulate an already hard-hit Gaza Strip, as confirmed by global humanitarian agencies. Palestinians and rights groups say unarmed protesters are being shot while posing no real threat. In response, the IDF struck dozens of Hamas targets in the Strip.

"We hit Hamas in a significant way and hard".

The Zionist regime must now wait for the iron fist of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance and their painful reaction to the awful crimes in the Gaza Strip.
