Topic: Egypt calls for Gaza ceasefire as fighting rages


By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Yasmine Saleh GAZA/CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt called on Israel and the Palestinians on Saturday to halt hostilities and resume peace talks, but both sides kept up attacks, including an Israeli air strike which destroyed a residential tower block in the center of Gaza City. Hamas militants also fired rockets at Israel, hitting the southern city of Beersheba, where two people were hurt, police said. At least two rockets were also fired from Lebanon into northern Israel, but it was not initially clear who fired them, Lebanese and Israeli sources said. Initial reports said 17 people were wounded in the attack on the 13-storey Gaza building, local health officials said.
