'Israeli airstrike' hits refugee camp killing five people

An Israeli airstrike hit a public garden in a refugee camp in northern Gaza, killing five people including three children, according to Reuters citing medics.

Another explosion shook the grounds of Gaza's main Shifa hospital, according to eyewitnesses, although it is unclear whether there were any casualties.

The explosions ended a relative lull during the Muslim Eid holiday.

Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza have been locked in three weeks of fighting which has seen 1,049 people killed in the region.
