Israel sent a "clear message" to Hamas through the killing of its top military commander and is ready to "expand" its operation in Gaza if necessary, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday.

"Today we sent a clear message to Hamas and other terrorist organisations, and if it becomes necessary we are prepared to expand the operation," he said in a televised address at 18:40 GMT.

The televised address comes hours after Israel launched military operations resulting in the death of Hamas top commander Ahmed al-Jaabari and seven others.
