Following a somber Eid al-Fitr that saw nine children die on the Muslim holiday Gaza continued to be pounded into early morning Tuesday.

Israeli airstrikes targeted the Al-Shouroq building in central Gaza City, which houses several media companies. Hamas said its TV and radio stations were marked.
Gaza's interior ministry added the house of a Hamas leader was shot at, causing damage but no casualties.
The widespread night of attacks comes as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had warned Israel it needed to prepare itself for a long conflict crushing any hopes for a sustainable peace agreement as the fighting enters its fourth week.
On Monday afternoon 9 children - who were out playing on the Muslim holiday - were killed after explosions erupted at the Shanti refugee camp soon after a hospital was also hit in a separate incident.//
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reiterated an earlier call by the United Nations for an immediate, unconditional humanitarian truce in Gaza demanding both sides to end the violence "in the name of humanity".
