The Israeli military has begun a ground offensive against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip, stepping up its 10-day-old military operation.
It said it was in response to continued militant rocket fire and to strike a "significant blow to Hamas", which controls Gaza.
BBC News spoke to Lara Abu Ramadan, who lives on the 11th floor of a building in Gaza City.
She said it had been "a horrible night" and she had seen light flares and heard "continuous bombing".
