In Gaza, at least 26 people, including children, have been killed as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he is ready to "significantly expand" the operation against Hamas militants.
Meanwhile several people were injured in Israel by some of the more than 50 rockets fired from Gaza in the deadliest day so far of the conflict.
