Hamas said Tuesday that "all Israelis" would be targeted after a deadly strike on a house in the southern city of Khan Yunis killed seven people, among them two teenagers.

"The Khan Yunis massacre... of children is a horrendous war crime, and all Israelis have now become legitimate targets for the resistance," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in a statement, without elaborating.

Medics said another 25 people were wounded in the strike.

Witnesses said a drone launched a warning flare, prompting relatives and neighbours to gather at the house as a human shield, but shortly afterwards an F-16 fired a missile which levelled the building.

Two teenage boys were among those killed, emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.
