Description

A child and three women, one of them pregnant, have been killed in airstrikes on Gaza say medics, as the Israeli military confirmed one of its soldiers was missing presumed dead. The latest deaths came as diplomatic efforts were stepped up aimed at securing a ceasefire in the bloody conflict. The four civilians died in two separate Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza strip. The missing Israeli soldier was one of seven personnel who had been inside an armoured vehicle hit by an anti-tank missile on Sunday. The military has only been able to identify six of the dead, but a spokesman denied any possibility the unaccounted for soldier was still alive. It follows claims by Hamas it had captured a soldier, which was denied at the time by Israel's ambassador to the UN. Militants displayed a photo ID and army serial number raising fears they had seized his remains, which could be used to exchange for prisoners. It came as the number killed in the 15-day conflict passed 560 people, including nearly 100 children. Palestinians killed since the assault began on July 8 has reached 539, while the number of Israeli dead rose to 29 people. The continued violence comes as diplomatic efforts intensify in Cairo, where US Secretary of State John Kerry is meeting Egyptian leaders including the country's president Abdel Fattah al Sisi. As Mr Kerry arrived in Cairo, the US confirmed it would provide $47m (£27m) in humanitarian aid for Gaza. "We will work to see if there is some way to not only arrive at a ceasefire of some kind, but to get to a discussion about the underlying issues," Mr Kerry said at the start of a meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Monday. "Nothing will be resolved by any ceasefire, temporary or long, without really getting to those issues at some point, and that's what we need to do." A senior State Department official said Mr Kerry's diplomatic efforts are aimed at achieving "a cessation of hostilities as soon as possible". Mr Ban is scheduled to fly to Israel for talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and also to meet Palestinian officials in the West Bank. But Israel has signalled it is not willing to reach a truce before it knocks out militant infrastructure in Gaza, including networks of tunnels along the Gaza frontier. "This is not the time to talk of a ceasefire," Israel's communications minister Gilad Erdan said. "We must complete the mission, and the mission cannot end until the threat of the tunnels is removed." Israel's aerial bombardment has so far resulted in an exodus of more than 100,000 Palestinian civilians, according to the United Nations.
