At least four Hamas police officers were killed and more than 10 wounded on Tuesday night in an Israeli airstrike on their police station east of the southern Gaza Strip town of Kahn Younis.

Witnesses said "one air-to-ground rocket was fired at a police station, east of the town of Khan Younis in southern Gaza Strip," killing and wounding the Hamas police officers.

They also said that the two-story building was also completely destroyed and ambulances and rescue teams got four bodies out from the building and took the wounded to Nasser Hospital in the town.

A spokesman for the interior ministry of the deposed Hamas government confirmed the Israeli airstrike, saying four people were killed and about a dozen wounded, some are in serious conditions.

An Israeli army spokesman said in a statement that the Israeli air forces targeted an office belongs to Hamas movement and there was an armed Hamas cell that fires mortars on Israel from the Gaza Strip.
