Gaza has seen one of its heaviest nights of bombardment in three weeks, after Israel's prime minister warned of a long conflict ahead.

Gaza's only power plant was damaged as Israel carried out 60 air strikes, also targeting sites associated with Hamas, the group which controls Gaza.

At least 60 people died in Gaza, possibly including UN staff members.

An Israeli military spokesman said the strikes signalled a "gradual increase in the pressure" on Hamas.

In a televised address on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed the need to destroy tunnels dug under the Gaza-Israel border, to prevent militants infiltrating Israel.
