Gaza death toll passes 100 as truce efforts build
Israeli strikes have killed 32 Palestinians, taking the Gaza death toll to 109.
The violence has raged for almost a week, and UN chief Ban Ki-moon has joined efforts to end the worst violence in four years.
He is in Cairo to push for a ceasefire.
Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal meanwhile said his movement is committed to efforts to secure a truce.
But he insisted that Israel must lift its six-year blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Terrified and desperate, many Gaza families have fled their homes, some seeking haven in the south which has seen fewer strikes.
But they know nowhere is safe.
To date, the Israeli military has struck more than 1,350 targets in Gaza.
Over 600 rockets have hit southern Israel while another 324 have been intercepted.
