Gaza bombardment kills at least 100

More than 100 Palestinians are said to have been killed in the last 24 hours after Israel intensified its bombardment of Gaza.

An Israeli military spokesman said the strikes signalled a "gradual increase in the pressure" on Hamas.

Palestinian officials now say 1,156 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in the fighting since 8 July. Some 6,700 have been injured. Israel has lost 53 soldiers and three civilians.
