Israeli warplanes kept up deadly raids on Gaza but failed to stop Palestinian militants firing rockets across the border, while international appeals mounted for a truce.

As the violence worsened, US President Barack Obama told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that his government was willing to broker a ceasefire.

In a phone call related by the White House, Obama said he was concerned the fighting could escalate and "called for all sides to do everything they can to protect the lives of civilians".

United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon also appealed for an immediate ceasefire at an emergency meeting of the Security Council, saying it was "more urgent than ever" to establish a ceasefire.
