Netanyahu: Prepared to 'continue and intensify operation'

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will expand its airstrikes on Gaza if Hamas rejects a truce proposal by Egypt.

Hamas, which controls Gaza, is still discussing the plan, but its armed wing has rejected it as a "surrender".
