    The United Nations is warning of the risk of “full-scale war” as the clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians continue.

    Israel’s Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, warned Palestinian militants that this was just the beginning, threatening to strike with “blows they haven’t dreamed of”.

    The United States is sending a senior diplomat to the Middle East to urge Israelis and Palestinians to end the violence.

    At least 65 Palestinians including 15 children and six Israelis are reported to have been killed since the fighting began.

    In the past few days Palestinian militants have fired barrages of rockets into Israel, many aimed at Tel Aviv. Israel has carried out a heavy bombardment of Gaza launching hundreds of air strikes.

    Tensions have been growing in Jerusalem, partly due to a long-running threat to evict Palestinians from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem in an area claimed by Jewish settlers.

    Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Tom Bateman in Jerusalem, Rushdi Abualouf in Gaza and Caroline Hawley.
