Gaza wakes up to barrage of explosions after Israeli PM dismisses ceasefire

Gaza was rocked by a barrage of explosions on Tuesday morning following Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's dismissal of a ceasefire in the widening conflict.

Destroyed buildings lined the besieged Palestinian enclave, with thick smoke clouds covering the sky amid Israel's expanded ground operation.

Netanyahu said late on Monday that Israel would not agree to a cessation of hostilities with Hamas in Gaza and would press ahead with its plans to wipe out the group.

Gaza health authorities say that 8,306 people, including 3,457 minors, have been killed in Israeli attacks since Oct. 7. UN officials say more than 1.4 million of Gaza's civilian population of about 2.3 million have been made homeless.
