The United Nations Security Council is expected to adopt new proposals aimed at increasing aid in Gaza, as the besieged enclave runs low on supplies of fuel, food, water and medicine.

Two rival proposals from the US and Russia offer different resolutions to the aid crisis, with Russia proposing a ceasefire and the US suggesting humanitarian pauses for supplies to be brought into Gaza.

Gaza has been under "total siege" since Hamas carried out an unprecedented attack in Israel, killing at least 1,400 people and kidnapping around 200 others.

Air strikes subsequently carried out in Gaza, in an attempt to destroy Hamas, have killed 5,000 people, of which 2,000 are children.

Following an open debate on the conflict at the UN, Israel said it would revoke visas for UN officials after secretary general Antonio Guterres said the attack on Israel did not happen "in a vacuum".

Guterres also called for a humanitarian ceasefire, however Israel said that such a move would only allow Hamas to regroup.
