AT least 11 people, including children, have been killed in an Israeli attack on the Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza, it has been reported.

The Palestinian Wafa news agency reported that the strike hit a playground frequently visited by displaced children.

Most of those killed were children, the news agency reported with several people also wounded in the attack.

The camp is densely populated and has become even more congested after thousands of families were forced to flee their homes in Gaza’s north after Israel began its assault on the area.

One eyewitness described the situation as a “horrific scene of children torn apart”.

The latest data from Unicef said that one child in Gaza is killed or injured every 10 minutes and further said that at least 70 children are injured every day during the Israeli bombardment.

Since Hamas' attack on Israel on October 7, more than 33,000 Palestinians have been killed with more than 76,000 injured.

David Cameron visit

Meanwhile, the Foreign Secretary has arrived in Israel for talks with the country’s leaders following Iran’s attack over the weekend.

David Cameron is expected to meet with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu (below) and other senior figures to discuss the response to the drone and missile barrage launched by Tehran on Saturday night.

The UK Government has called for restraint following the attack, with Rishi Sunak delivering that message to Netanyahu in a phone call on Tuesday, saying it was a “moment for calm heads to prevail”.

Cameron has urged Tel Aviv to be “smart as well as tough” by not escalating the conflict with Iran, and has recently spoken with his counterparts in Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates as part of efforts to reduce tensions in the region.

The UK joined allies in defending Israel when Iran launched about 350 drones and missiles at Israel on Saturday, with British jets shooting down a number of drones.

The Foreign Secretary has faced criticism this week for his hypocrisy when discussing Gaza while Mhairi Black also told the Commons on Monday that “whilst we rightly condemn the violent acts of Iran, so too must we condemn the violent acts of Israel”.
