Israeli fire killed 10 Palestinians across Gaza Monday, while Egypt proposed a new truce that would open key crossings into the blockaded territory.Since an earlier cease-fire collapsed on Aug. 19, the death toll in Gaza has risen steadily with at least 113 Palestinians killed in more than 350 Israeli airstrikes across the territory. Over the same period, more than 650 rockets have struck Israeli territory, one of which killed a 4-year-old boy over the weekend, army figures show. Since midnight Sunday, Israeli fire killed at least 10 Palestinians, including a woman, a 78-year-old man and a boy aged three. The Gaza Religious Affairs Ministry said Israeli fire during the day destroyed four more mosques, raising to 71 the number of mosques destroyed over the past seven weeks.Hamas, the de facto authority in Gaza, says any truce must provide for a lifting of Israel's crippling eight-year blockade and the opening of a seaport and airport, while Israel has demanded Gaza be demilitarized.
