Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that his country will step up air strikes against militants from the Gaza Strip as tensions in the region continue to escalate.

As of Monday evening, 26 Palestinians – 16 militants, nine children and one woman – have reportedly been killed in Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip. Rockets fired by militants from the Gaza Strip killed two Israeli civilians and wounded 10.

Netanyahu said the Hamas militant group that rules Gaza “will now receive blows they did not expect”.

Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli police outside the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem on Monday, and the city has seen the worst violence in years. The mounting tensions are due to a clash of factors, including a pending ruling by the Israeli Supreme Court in a case by right-wing Israelis attempting to evict some Palestinian residents from a neighborhood in East Jerusalem.
