Cross-border bloodshed clash between Israel forces and militants in Gaza is continuing, a day after an Israeli air strike killed a Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander.
After an overnight lull, rocket fire towards Israel resumed and Israeli aircraft conducted retaliatory strikes.
Gaza's Hamas-run health ministry said 26 Palestinians, including three children, had been killed by Israeli fire by Wednesday evening.
In Israel, 63 people have been treated for injuries and stress symptoms.
Late on Wednesday, PIJ offered terms for a ceasefire, which included an end to Israel's targeted killings of militants and Gaza border protesters and well as steps to ease the blockade of the Palestinian enclave.
Israel has so far made no public comments on the truce offer.
After a six-hour pause, PIJ militants resumed firing rockets at around 06:30 (04:30 GMT), triggering air-raid sirens in southern and central Israel.
At least 360 rockets have been fired into Israel from Gaza since Tuesday, the Israeli army says. It adds that 90% of the missiles were intercepted.
Report said an elderly woman was slightly wounded by broken glass after a rocket hit a house in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, Israeli media reported. Another rocket hit a factory in the southern town of Sderot.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it had bombed more PIJ targets in Gaza on Wednesday in response, including a military headquarters in Khan Younis and a factory manufacturing warheads for long-range rockets in the south of the strip.
The IDF said "20 terrorists" were killed, most of them from Islamic Jihad.
The health ministry in Gaza, which is run by Hamas militants, said three children were among the 23 people killed in Israeli strikes on Wednesday.
In a statement, Save the Children charity said it was "deeply concerned by the recently escalated hostilities", calling for an immediate ceasefire."
Our teams in Gaza have been unable to go to work and our programmes have been suspended," the charity said.
