Israel-Hamas: Missiles continue to fly today in both directions

Missiles have continued to fly today in both directions with more than 100 targets struck overnight in Gaza – while Israel has begun evacuating residents near the Lebanese border after Hezbollah and Hamas fired a barrage of rockets there.

The United Nations chief Antonio Gutteres has said he expects aid trucks to begin crossing into Gaza in “the next day or so” – as he visited the blocked Rafah crossing point – describing it as the difference between life and death.

And a warning there are some distressing images in his report.
