Gaza crisis: 'More than 100' killed in Israeli strikes

More than 100 people have died in the Gaza Strip in six days of violence, Hamas officials say, as Israeli forces continue air strikes they say aim to stop rocket attacks into Israel.

Monday's fatalities include a commander of the Islamic Jihad militant group.

More than 100 rockets were fired on Israel by militants on Monday. Three Israelis have died since Wednesday.

Efforts to secure a ceasefire continue, with a senior Egyptian official saying there are "encouraging signs".
