Send Thanks! A link has been sent. Done Kerry pushes truce as Gaza conflict hits Israel air traffic By Shaun TANDON 10 minutes ago 0 shares . . Jerusalem (AFP) – US Secretary of State John Kerry took his truce mission to Israel Wednesday as the conflict in Gaza entered its 16th day and world airlines suspended flights over rocket fears. As air traffic thinned over Tel Aviv airport, Kerry flew in from Cairo for whirlwind talks in Jerusalem and Ramallah, despite a US aviation warning on flights into Israel after a rocket struck near the runway a day earlier. And there was no let-up in the violence which has so far killed 649 Palestinians and 31 Israelis, with neither Israel nor Hamas showing willingness to end hostilities, despite days of diplomatic efforts to coax them into a truce. – Possible war crimes – Palestinian emergency services said that at least 18 people were killed early Wednesday, while the Israeli army announced that another two soldiers had been killed in fighting a day earlier.
