The bombs came shortly after two Palestinian civilians, including a child, were killed in an Israeli air strike on northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Lahia.

An Israeli army spokeswoman had no immediate comment on the strike.

Witnesses said a series of explosions rocked the Gaza city campus.

Israel has killed more than 300 Palestinians in an aerial offensive since Saturday in the Gaza Strip.

Several buildings at the female campus inside the Islamic University compound were completely destroyed in six air strikes just after midnight.
