It may also divert the Israeli security forces, making a ground incursion less likely.

"I note with great concern the escalation of violence in the West Bank, including east Jerusalem, as well as in and around Gaza, and the possible commission of crimes under the Rome Statute", which founded the ICC, Fatou Bensouda said on Twitter.

Issawi Fredj, an Arab deputy from the left-wing Meretz party, said the images were a sign that the country was heading towards "civil war".

Gaza militants have fired almost 2,000 rockets into Israel, bringing life in the southern part of the country to a standstill.

Dozens of rockets were fired from Gaza towards the southern Israeli coastal cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon, and in the vicinity of Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport.

"Innocent citizens are being attacked by terrorist organisations, the heart is heavy and the images hard, but we can not allow ourselves to be drawn into provocations and aggressions", he said.

But Ms Aludaini said claims they only target Hamas leaders were "fake news, because the people targeted here are civilians". Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Wednesday ordered border guards deployed to help police keep order.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced shortly after midnight local time that "IDF air and ground troops are now attacking in the Gaza Strip".

Gaza health officials said late Thursday that the relentless Israeli onslaught has killed at least 109 Palestinians, including 28 children.

The most intense hostilities in seven years between Israel and Gaza's armed groups were triggered by weekend unrest at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

Israel has struck hundreds of targets in the Gaza Strip after Hamas militants started firing rockets into the country late Monday.

A source close to Israel's arch-enemy Hezbollah said the Lebanese Shiite group had no link to the incident.

The disturbances, in which riot police had repeatedly clashed with Palestinians, has been driven by anger over the looming evictions of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of east Jerusalem.

Coinciding with Israel's assault on Gaza, violence is surging in areas where Palestinians and Jews reside. A pregnant woman, Reema Telbani and her child were killed by an Israeli attack on their home.

When asked by Germany's DPA news agency about the operation, an IDF spokeswoman would not say whether troops had actually entered the Gaza Strip, of if they are carrying out operations from the Israeli side of the border.

Visiting a rocket defence battery, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told troops to be prepared for an extended campaign against Hamas.

The violence can take a long time to subside, said Mark A. Heller of the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University.

The video grab shows a far-right Israeli mob attacking who they considered an Arab man.

Mr Gantz, appearing alongside him despite their political rivalry - both are now trying to muster majority support to head a government in Israel's deadlocked Knesset - said: "There are lots of targets lined up".

In Gaza, two multi-storey residential buildings and a tower housing media outlets, including one linked to Hamas, collapsed after Israel urged occupants to evacuate in advance of its air strikes, and another structure was heavily damaged.

"Nothing justifies the lynching of Arabs by Jews, and nothing justifies the lynching of Jews by Arabs", he said, adding Israel was fighting a battle "on two fronts".
