Israel, Palestinians battle as Egyptian-proposed Gaza ceasefire collapses

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel resumed air strikes in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday after agreeing to an Egyptian-proposed ceasefire deal that failed to get Hamas militants to halt rocket attacks. The week-old conflict seemed to be at a turning point, with Hamas defying Arab and Western calls to cease fire and Israel threatening to step up an offensive that could include an invasion of the densely populated enclave of 1.8 million. Under a blueprint announced by Egypt - Gaza's neighbour and whose military-backed government has been at odds with Islamist Hamas - a mutual "de-escalation" was to have begun at 9 a.m #India #Business #Egypt #Technology #Russia #Israel #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom
