Israeli Aircraft Hit More Than 70 Targets in Gaza

Smoke rises as flames spread across buildings after Israeli strikes in the Shijaiyah neighborhood in Gaza City, Tuesday, July 22, 2014. A high-level attempt by the U.N. chief and the U.S. secretary of state to end deadly Israel-Hamas fighting was off to a rough start Monday: Gaza's Hamas rulers signaled they won't agree to an unconditional cease-fire, Israel's prime minister said he'll do whatever is necessary to keep Israelis safe from Hamas attacks and the overall Palestinian death toll surpassed 560.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A police spokesman says Israeli aircraft have hit more than 70 targets in the Gaza Strip, including the home of the late leader of Hamas' military wing, five mosques and a football stadium.

Ayman Batniji says tank shells damaged several houses along the eastern border of the territory early Tuesday and that at least 19 fishing boats were burned by navy shells fired from the Mediterranean.

The Israeli military says two soldiers were killed, bringing the number of troops killed in two weeks of Israel-Hamas fighting to 27. A Palestinian official says more than 570 Palestinians have been killed since then.

U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met in Cairo in a new attempt to broker a cease-fire. Prospects are slim because wide gaps remain.
