At least 10 people were killed and scores injured in early morning raids by Israeli planes on targets in the Gaza Strip, the enclave's director of emergency services said, bringing the death toll to at least 360 since the first Israeli attacks.

AFP - Israeli warplanes carried out dozens of air strikes on the Gaza Strip early on Tuesday, killing at least 10 Palestinians and wounding 40, the director of Gaza's emergency services, Moawiya Abu Hassanein told AFP.

   
At least 40 air strikes, centred mostly on Gaza City, targeted the Hamas ministry and security buildings, Hamas sources and witnesses said.
   
The Israeli military confirmed new air raids were under way "targeting Hamas targets".
   
Among the buildings struck were those housing the offices of the prime minister, the defence ministry, foreign ministry, finance ministry, and the Islamic University, Hamas sources and witnesses said.
   
Also targeted was a club tied to the Fatah movement of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas.
   
The foreign ministry, headed by Mahmud Zahar, one of the most influential Hamas leaders, was completely destroyed as were nearby homes.
   
The finance ministry was also completely leveled, and fires broke out near the bombed sites.
   
The positions of Hamas' armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, located west of Gaza City were also struck.
   
Other explosions could be heard in Gaza City later, but their precise locations were not immediately.
   
Five ambulance workers trying to reach victims at the foreign ministry building were also wounded in the bombing, Hassanein said.
   
The air strikes knocked out the electricity in Gaza City and to the north.
   
Dozens of houses have been damaged in the air strikes, witnesses said.
