An IAF attack on Gaza killed a four-year-old-boy and wounded seven others on Saturday, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an. 

Quoting Gazan Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra, Ma'an reported that Israeli fire killed the boy in the Abasan neighborhood east of Khan Younis. 

The Jerusalem Post could not independently confirm the veracity of this report.

Violence between Gaza and Israel escalated overnight Friday as rockets rained down in the South, and the IAF stuck three terror bases in Gaza.
