Israel says it has arrested 19 members of the Palestinian group Islamic Jihad in raids across the occupied West Bank, after carrying out airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip.

Eleven people have been killed in the air strikes, including a child and PIJ leader Tayseer Jabari.

Israel said the strikes followed an "immediate threat" from the group.

Scores of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel overnight, most of them intercepted, Israel's military said.

The latest violence is the most serious flare-up between Israel and Gaza in just over a year
