The US is asking Israel to take greater care to protect civilians and limit damage to infrastructure in any offensive in southern Gaza, senior US officials said, in what amounts to a more forthright approach to protecting Palestinians.

The move represents a distinct shift in Biden administration policy after strong domestic and international criticism. It comes a month after the White House said it had set no "red lines" for Israel's response to Hamas's October 7 attacks that killed 1,200.

The Israeli offensive in northern Gaza has proven devastating, with over 15,000 Palestinians killed, disease rampant and vast numbers of survivors left homeless and forced to flee south by a relentless bombing campaign and a lack of essentials such as food, power and water.
