An Israeli missile flattened a two-story house in a residential neighborhood of Gaza City on Sunday, killing at least 11 civilians, mostly women and children, Palestinian medical officials said, as Israel expanded a military offensive to target homes of wanted militants.
Israeli and Palestinian officials Thursday offered competing interpretations of an Israeli proposal for Palestinian statehood, with the prospect of renewed peace talks drifting further away.
After months of wavering, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas took a decisive step Monday toward reconciliation with the Islamic militant group Hamas, a move Israel promptly warned would close the door to any future peace talks.
A top Palestinian official said Tuesday that Russia supports his government's bid to seek recognition of a Palestinian state at the United Nations this fall.
Negotiator Nabil Shaath said the period would be used to try to hammer out an agreement on a border between Israel and a future Palestinian state and another extension would be required if the sides failed to reach agreement.
However, once the parliament stopped functioning, it was no longer possible to make the necessary changes in the law, Mr. Shaath said.
