      elderly."

      Erdogan said, without explicitly referring to Israel, that Turkey cannot
      rely on the United Nations: "If we have to depend on the Security Council,
      we will lose. Today, against them. Tomorrow, they are against us. If we
      have to die, let us die like a man."

      about measures to limit casualties: <http://www.twitter.com/elizrael> "The
      attempt to avoid harming civilians will make terrorists less afraid in the
      future".

      0835 GMT: Gazan officials have said seven people were killed and 15
      injured<http://www.twitter.com/pdanahar> in

      into
      Southern Israel this morning. One man was lightly injured.

      been told by Hamas that "80% of details [have been] resolved in ceasefire
      talks so far".

      0815 GMT: The latest on the diplomatic front....

      US officials have said that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will travel
      to Jerusalem, Ramallah in the West Bank, and Cairo for talks. She will meet
      Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian Authority officials,
      and Egyptian mediators; however, she will not speak with any Hamas
      representatives.

      Fourteen Foreign Ministers --- 13 from Arab States and Turkey's Ahmet
      Davutoglu --- and Arab League officials will visit Gaza today.

      United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has said, on his trip to the
      region, "My message is clear --- all sides must halt fire immediately....We
      all must recognise that Israel has legitimate concerns."

      0720 GMT: There were at least six more Gazan deaths overnight amid Israeli
      attacks --- two in Rafah and four in Jabaliya refugee camp.

      The Israeli navy has join air forces in shelling and bombing. The Islamic
      National Bank, surrounded by apartment buildings, was hit overnight,
      injuring four people.

      At least three rockets have been fired from Gaza and intercepted by
      Israel's Iron Dome system.

      0530 GMT: Israel maintained the aerial assault on Gaza on Monday. As Gazans
      buried the more than 30 people who were slain on Sunday --- notably 12
      members of a single family, killed when a four-story residential building
      was flattened --- another 24 people were killed by shells and missiles.

      The death toll since Israel launched operations on Wednesday is 111. Three
      Israelis were killed by Gazan rockets last Thursday.

      With more than 100 "targets" overnight, the Israelis continued to hit
      buildings and camps with civilians, by accident or by design. For the third
      time in two days, it struck a media centre, killing a senior Islamic Jihad
      official.

      Monday morning's speculation about an Israeli ground invasion was eased
      when West Jerusalem put out the news that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
      had decided against the escalation for now, giving time to efforts for a
      ceasefire. Negotiations continued through the day, with Hamas officials and
      at least one senior Israeli involved in Cairo-based discussions, but there
      was no apparent advance towards a resolution.
