Fighting in Gaza intensified overnight with reports indicating that Israeli forces were advancing around the southern towns of Khan Younis and Rafah, in what appeared to be an attempt to prevent Hamas from moving a soldier reported to have been captured.

Reports from Rafah, in the south of the Gaza Strip and close to where Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin is thought to have been taken, indicated heavy civilian casualties from Israeli bombardment. Troops continued to clash with Hamas fighters.

The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) issued a warning through pre-recorded telephone calls to residents in Gaza, telling them to stay indoors under all circumstances.

Around 100 people in Rafah have been killed and hundreds more injured since fighting restarted after an internationally brokered ceasefire collapsed on Friday morning. At least a dozen have been killed elsewhere in Gaza and scores wounded. Health officials said the main hospital in Rafah had to be evacuated due to shelling on Friday afternoon.
