From Xinhua, which echoes other wire reports of the incident:

An Israeli F16 warplane by air-to- ground rockets destroyed on Wednesday night a Palestinian house owned by an Hamas Movement militant in northern Gaza Strip, witnesses and security sources said.

In northern Gaza, the IDF attacked yet another weapons storehouse, after warning the occupants and neighbors of the impending bombing. Secondary explosions occurred after the attack, signaling the presence of large amounts of explosive material and/or arms in the building.

Near what used to be N'vei Dekalim in southern Gaza, just east of Khan Yunis, six Palestinian terrorists were wounded or killed in three separate clashes with IDF forces this morning. Among them were a man and three of his sons, all armed Hamas terrorists, as well as another 12-year-old son.
