The death toll in Gaza is well past 3000, with Israel seeing at least 1400 casualties. 

US President Joe Biden will arrive in Israel tomorrow, and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is also understood to be going. 

Biden is hoping to avoid a wider regional war breaking out with Iran's warning it may get involved if Hezbollah steps in.

He said there’s a real risk that Israel will wind up fighting a two-front war.
