At least 29 Palestinians have been killed and dozens wounded in an Israeli air strike on a camp for displaced people outside a school in Southern Gaza.

Gaza's Hamas-run Health Ministry says the strike had hit next to the gate of al-Awda School in the town of Abasan al-Kabira, east of the city of Khan Younis, and the initial death toll at 25 and increasing.

One video showed more than a dozen dead and seriously wounded people, including several children, on the floor of a local hospital.

The Israeli Military says it had used "precise munition" to target a "terrorist from Hamas' military wing" who, it said, had taken part in the 7 October attack on Israel.

It said it was looking into the reports that civilians were harmed "adjacent" to al-Awda School.

The incident comes a week after the Israeli Military ordered civilians to evacuate Abasan al-Kabira and other areas of eastern Khan Younis, prompting tens of thousands to flee.

One source at the Nasser Hospital told BBC, where the injured from Abasan al-Kabira were taken, that they expected the number of dead to increase.
