Gemma Connell of the UN humanitarian agency Ocha told the BBC what she had seen at the Al-Aqsa hospital in central Gaza on Monday was "absolute carnage".

Many severely injured people could not be treated because the hospital was "absolutely overloaded", she said.

Israel's prime minister earlier vowed to intensify the fight again Hamas.

Benjamin Netanyahu said he had visited Gaza on Monday morning and that Israel's military campaign there was "not close to being over".

His comments come days after US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Israel should lower the intensity of its strikes.

In another development, the Pentagon says the US armed forces have carried out air strikes in Iraq against "Iranian-sponsored militias" in response to an attack on the Irbil air base that injured three US military personnel, one of them critically.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the strikes had targeted three facilities used by the Iranian-backed Kataeb Hezbollah group and its affiliates.

He said there had been a series of attacks by the militias on US bases in both Iraq and Syria, and stressed that the US would not hesitate to protect its people and facilities.
