US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed to support Israeli security while calling for a quick de-escalation of Gaza fighting that raged on unabated amid signs of an emerging truce deal.

The top US diplomat flew in for talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as efforts continued across the region to refine an elusive accord to end a week of violence that has cost 136 Palestinian and five Israeli lives.

The Israeli army confirmed its first fatality from rocket attacks yesterday, and a defence ministry official was also killed, while another missile landed harmlessly just south of Jerusalem on a day of continued strikes from Gaza.
