GAZA CITY, Jan 16 AFP - At least ten people were killed on Friday in an Israeli strike on a house in Gaza City during a funeral wake, according to Palestinian medics.

They were not immediately able to say whether the explosion was caused by a tank shell or an air strike.

Earlier, a woman and her five children -- all under the age of 13 -- were killed when an air strike destroyed their house in Jabaliya, north of Gaza City, according to medics.

The deadly attacks came as Israel's largest offensive ever launched on Gaza entered its fourth week, with over 1,100 Palestinians killed in the operation aimed at halting rocket fire from the Hamas-ruled enclave.
