UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos has expressed extreme concern at the situation in Gaza, describing a ceasefire as "vital".

She said the conflict meant 44% of Gaza was a no-go area for Palestinians, and residents were running out of food.

More than 710 Palestinians and 30 Israelis have been killed in the past 16 days of fighting.

Israel's ground operations and air strikes have continued, and more Hamas rockets have been fired into Israel.
