Israel upped pressure on Hamas Tuesday, with warplanes hitting two Gaza City high-rises on day 50 of their conflict as the warring parties mulled a new Egyptian truce proposal.There appeared to be little outward sign, however, of interest in the Egyptian proposal which seeks to broker a more permanent end to seven weeks of fighting in Gaza which has so far killed 2,136 Palestinians and 68 on the Israeli side. Although the Palestinians said they would be prepared to accept the new Egyptian offer, they would only do so after hearing Israel's response to the proposal, a senior official told AFP Monday.Some time later, warplanes fired on a 16-storey mixed-use complex known as "Little Italy" in the northern Nasser neighborhood, wounding 25 people, Qudra said.Shortly afterwards, warplanes fired on the 14-storey Al-Basha building in the western Rimal neighborhood, causing massive damage and wounding another 15 people, witnesses and medics said.
