Israel is calling up 16,000 extra reservists to bolster its military as the conflict in Gaza continues.

The move brings the total number of reserves called up by Israel to 86,000. Officials say it will give the army scope to maintain operations.

Meanwhile, PM Benjamin Netanyahu says that Israel will not stop its operation in Gaza until all the tunnels constructed by Hamas have been destroyed.

Speaking ahead of a cabinet meeting, he said Israel was determined to destroy the tunnels - used to attack troops and towns - "with or without a ceasefire".
