Israel has conducted dozens of air strikes on the Gaza strip today, after Palestinian militants fired barrages of rockets at Southern Israeli cities.
The pre-dawn raids on Gaza were some of the heaviest seen since the fighting began a week ago.
The israeli military said more than 50 warplanes conducted a 20-minute attack on the Gaza strip shortly before dawn on Monday.
They struck 35 “terror targets” and destroyed more than 15km (9.3 miles) of an underground tunnel network belonging to Hamas, it added.
The military also said it had hit the homes of nine “high-ranking” Hamas commanders.
Meanwhile, international calls for a ceasefire continue to mount.
The UN security council held an emergency meeting on Sunday, and Secretary-
General António Guterres warned that further fighting had “the potential to unleash an uncontainable security and humanitarian crisis”.
But there were no signs of that happening as the conflict entered its second week.
