Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak has authorised the call-up of 30,000 army reservists, amid speculation about a possible ground offensive on Gaza.

There were a number of heavy strikes on Gaza overnight.

The developments came after Palestinian militants fired rockets from Gaza 70km north towards Tel Aviv.

Fighting has intensified since Israel killed Ahmed Jabari, the military leader of the Islamist group that controls the territory, on Wednesday.
