As per the latest developments, hundreds of Israeli tanks have begun positioning themselves on the border fence with Gaza, as the relentless bombardment of the besieged Palestinian territory continues on Sunday.

agaIsraeli strikes on the Gaza Strip since Hamas's attack on southern Israeli civilians eight days ago have killed at least 2,329 people.

It said 9,042 people have also been injured, giving an overall toll as of 7:47am Sunday as Israel continued its blistering retaliatory air campaign on targets in Gaza.

Israel has warned around 1.1 million Gazans living in the north of the Palestinian territory to flee to the south ahead of a ground incursion which the military has indicated will focus on Gaza City, the base of the leadership of the Hamas fighter group.

Since Friday thousands of Gazans, who cannot leave the enclave as it is blockaded by both Israel and Egypt, have packed what belongings they can into bags and suitcases, to trudge through the rubble-strewn streets.

The city streets that were lively just a week ago are now quiet. Yet amid that tension, Israel’s largest city has become a sanctuary for citizens and foreign workers who have fled the country’s south.

A stream of cars, trucks, three-wheeled vehicles and donkey-drawn carts joined the frantic mass movement south, all loaded with families and their belongings, mattresses, bedding and bags strapped onto the roofs of parked vehicles.

Meanwhile, Lebanon's Hezbollah and Israel exchanged deadly border fire Sunday, with the Iran-backed group claiming responsibility for strikes that Israel said killed a civilian.

It has further raised cross-border tensions during Israel's war with Gaza-based fighters.
