The violence is intensifying in southern Gaza with civilians now being told to leave the southern city of Khan Younis and head west. Director-General of the World Health Organization Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says nowhere and no-one is safe in Gaza amid the Israeli bombardment of the Palestinian enclave. The Palestinian Red Crescent says what aid is getting into Gaza does not even touch the sides of what civilians need. Israeli soldiers have been told to "press harder" in their fight against Hamas. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu's senior advisor Mark Regev says the war could end tomorrow if Hamas released its remaining hostages and surrendered. Associated Press journalist Philip Crowther spoke to Corin Dann from Jerusalem.
