Ayman al-Sahbani, a doctor at Gaza's Shifa hospital, said all the casualties were civilians and among the wounded were children.
Witnesses said that following the large explosion, Israel retaliated with tank and machine gun fire towards a residential area in Gaza, hitting people who were returning from a funeral near Gaza City.
The Israeli military said it was investigating the incident.
Rami Harra said his 17-year-old brother Muhmmad Harra was killed in the strike.
"He was at home when the explosion took place. He went out to see what happened and when he started to help evacuating wounded people who were on the ground another shell hit the place and killed him," he said outside the morgue.
"Why did they kill him? I can't believe my eyes that I am seeing his dead body."
