|At least 105 people have died in the Gaza Strip in six days of violence, Hamas officials say, as Israeli forces continue their bombardment.
Monday's fatalities include a commander of the Islamic Jihad militant group and a couple and their two small children.
More than 100 rockets were fired on Israel on Monday, but no casualties were reported. Last week, three Israelis died in one such attack.
The Israeli cabinet has been meeting to discuss an Egyptian ceasefire proposal.
The content of the Egyptian plan is not known, but both Israel and Hamas have presented conditions.
Israel's include no hostile fire of any kind from Gaza and international efforts to prevent Hamas from rearming, while Hamas is demanding an end to the blockade on Gaza and "Israel's assassinations".
Egypt has been leading efforts to broker a peace deal, with both senior Israeli and Hamas officials in Cairo for talks. An Egyptian official said he hoped to be able to make an announcement on Monday or Tuesday.
