Israel has vowed to annihilate militant group Hamas - which controls the Gaza Strip - after its fighters launched an assault in Israel.

Israel has been bombarding Gaza – home to 2.3 million people, many of whom are children – non-stop since the Hamas incursion.

The air strikes have killed at least 2,837 Palestinians and injured more than 10,000.

Meanwhile, the October 7 assault left 1,300 Israelis dead.
