GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip- In the Middle East, repeated explosions have been lighting up the Gaza skyline, turning it orange during a heavy night of bombardment.
In central Gaza City early Tuesday, at least two major explosions hit a media complex housing the offices of Hamas-run television and radio. The blasts shook surrounding buildings and started a fire on the roof of the office block.
AP video showed a massive flash as the first strike hit the top of the building, sending debris raining down. The building also houses offices of a number of Arab satellite television news channels.
The overnight strikes came after a day of heavy Hamas-Israeli fighting in which nine children were killed by a strike on a Gaza park, according to Palestinian health officials - a tragedy that each side blamed on the other.
The latest bloodshed came despite mounting international calls for a cease-fire.
