Speaking at a news conference in Tel Aviv, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu warned of a "prolonged" Israeli campaign in Gaza.

Fighting between Israel and Hamas has claimed more than 1,030 Palestinian lives, most of them civilian, since 8 July, when Israel launched an offensive against Hamas in Gaza after a surge in rocket fire.

Israel's military death toll rose to 48 with Monday's deaths. Three civilians have also died.
