Palestinian police say Israeli warplanes have fired two missiles at an apartment tower in central Gaza City, sending a huge ball of fire and a black cloud of smoke into the air.

The force of the blast shook neighboring buildings.

Gaza health official Ashraf al-Kidra says at least 10 people, including four children, were wounded in the strike Saturday evening.

Police say a warning missile hit the roof of the 12-story building about five minutes before the airstrike. The building has 48 apartments.
