Hello, I'm Justine Greene with the BBC News.

The United Nations Middle East peace envoy has warned that the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza is escalating towards full scale war. Tor Wennesland was speaking after a day of intensifying violence. Palestinian militants fired hundreds of rockets deep into Israel with some targeting the city of Tel Aviv. Israel carried out heavy air strikes on Gaza, including the deliberate destruction of two tower blocks. At least 30 Palestinians and three people in Israel have been killed in 2 days of fighting. The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Hamas and Islamic Jihad over their actions. Hamas and Islamic Jihad have paid and I tell you here they will pay a very high price for their aggression. I said here tonight, their blood will be on their heads. The Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh has said the group is ready if Israel seeks escalation.

The Israeli government has declared a state of emergency in the city of Lod, one of several areas that have seen violent protests by Arab Israeli citizens. The mayor of Lod has described the situation as being like a civil war. James Reid reports.

The tension in Jerusalem that triggered the fighting with Palestinian militants in Gaza has also caused unrest among Israel's Arab minority population. The worst disturbances have been in Lod, a mixed city on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. Police say Arab residents have engaged in wide scale riots, burning cars and attacking businesses. Border police units have been brought in from the West Bank to try to restore order. Israeli media says it's the first time in decades that emergency powers have been used to control Arab community inside Israel.

A senior official in Ethiopia's war-torn Tigray region has said there's a deliberate campaign to prevent the population from farming, which he warned would lead to people dying of hunger. Abebe Gebrehiwot, the deputy head of Tigray's interim government, said on local TV that people in charge of law enforcement had been blocking seeds from reaching the region and telling people they were not allowed to farm.

The US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm says there's no need for motorists to hold petrol following Friday's cyberattack that shut down a major pipelines having 50 million consumers. Pump prices have risen in some areas with long queues forming at petrol stations that haven't run dry. A senior Biden administration cyber specialist Brandon Wales told a US security committee that cyberattacks like the one on the Colonial Pipeline were becoming more sophisticated, frequent and aggressive. As the pace and scale of cyber threats that we face expands, so must our response tool kit. We need sustained investment to modernize and protect our most critical federal systems, as well as state and local governments, suffering under budget constraints and facing increasingly aggressive ransomware operators.

From the conflict between Israel and Palestinian, we see again that the US and its alliance are the key factors that cause unrest in the world
