" Earlier Saturday Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said that an Egyptian truce plan provided a real chance to end the Gaza conflict."
Gaza, Aug 2 - At least seven Palestinians died in fresh Israeli strikes across the Gaza Strip Saturday bringing the number of Palestinians killed to 1,664 as efforts continued to put an end to the conflict.

Four Palestinians were killed, including three children, in an Israeli air strike on a house in Nuseirat refugee camp in central Gaza Strip, Xinhua quoted Ashraf al-Qedra, the health ministry spokesman in Gaza, as saying.

Al-Qedra said three more Palestinians were killed and ten wounded in another Israeli strike on a house in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah.

Death toll on Saturday all over the Gaza Strip reached 56 and more than 400 wounded, most of them were killed on Saturday from midnight until afternoon, said al-Qedra.

On Saturday morning, Israeli air strikes killed six people from the same family in a house in Rafah.

The Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip has left 1,664 Palestinians dead and 8,920 injured, Palestinian health authorities said Saturday.

Witnesses in eastern, southeast and northern Gaza Strip said they saw dozens of Israeli army tanks, armoured vehicles and troops withdrawing to the borderline area between the coastal enclave and Israel.

The health ministry spokesman added that two-thirds of the dead and wounded were civilians, including women, children and the elderly.

Earlier Saturday Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said that an Egyptian truce plan provided a real chance to end the Gaza conflict.

The Egyptian proposal is the real chance to find a solution to the crisis in Gaza and to end the bloodshed, Xinhua reported citing Sisi as saying in a joint conference with visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
