CNN personnel saw rockets blasting from the area, leaving a trail of smoke over the neighborhood mosque.
A building that housed a center used by some media outlets was also an apparent target of Israeli missiles. Witnesses said three explosions were followed by a ball of flame from the third floor at 3:20 p.m.
At least two people were killed, Palestinian sources said. Ramez Harb, information leader of the military media office of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, was among them, the sources said. In addition, two children were wounded, the sources said.
Journalists inside the building had also been warned to leave. They did so, staying out for several hours, after which a few returned. That's when it was hit.
The building had also been struck on Sunday.
