Diplomacy at work, as Israeli-Gaza conflict marks deadliest day
One day after the deadliest day of the Israeli-Hamas conflict thus far, world leaders are moving including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
Spokesperson Jen Psaki confirmed that Kerry will fly to Cairo today to work on a cease-fire agreement with Egyptian officials, whom - you'll remember - had proposed truce last week, that Hamas had rejected.
Meanwhile, the UN Security Council has convened in an emergency meeting.
They're discussing a draft resolution by one of the council members, Jordan which among other things, is calling for the withdrawal of Israeli occupying forces and lifting restrictions in and out of the Gaza Strip.
Sunday was the deadliest day in nearly two weeks of violence there leaving the most number of casualties on both the Palestinian and Israeli sides.
More than 60 Palestinians in *one crowded Gaza City neighborhood bringing up the total death toll to well over 400.
Meanwhile, 13 Israeli fighters were killed in an ambush that day -- they were all members of the Golani Brigade.
The Israeli military said it is investigating Hamas claims that they have captured an Israeli soldier.
