Israel-Hamas war LIVE: As the Israel-Hamas war entered the 18th day on Tuesday, Israeli warplanes are striking targets across Gaza ahead of an expected ground offensive in the besieged Hamas-ruled territory. Fears of a widening war have grown as Israel struck targets in the occupied West Bank, Syria and Lebanon and traded fire with Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group. According to the United Nations, the number of people killed in Gaza has exceeded 5,000. Women and children have made up more than 62 per cent of the fatalities, while more than 15,273 people have been injured. Meanwhile, the British government says it has concluded that a devastating explosion at a hospital in Gaza was likely caused by a misfired missile from within Palestinian territory, rather than an Israeli strike.
