    President Biden is sending an envoy to the Middle East, after dozens of Palestinian civilians and 16 fighters from the militant group Hamas have been killed by continued Israeli bombardment of Gaza.

    Six Israelis have been killed by Palestinian missiles. So far efforts to broker a truce are failing.

    The Israeli Defence Force says more than 1,000 rockets have been fired into Israel, many targeting Tel Aviv and surrounding towns. Israel has responded with hundreds of air strikes across Gaza.

    And in the town of Lod, a state of emergency has been declared after violent clashes between security forces and Israeli Arabs.

    A warning to viewers; some of the images in this report are distressing.
