Israel-Gaza conflict: Talks under way to broker ceasefire in Gaza

Talks are under way, brokered by Egypt, between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants after 3 days of violence which has seen at least 31 Palestinians killed.

Today Israel said that it killed a second senior Islamic Jihad commander after an air strike in Gaza.

The talks are around a proposed ceasefire after the most  serious flare up of violence between Israel and Gaza since May last year when more than 200 Palestinians and a dozen Israelis were killed.
