Diplomatic efforts to broker a truce in Gaza have intensified, with US Secretary of State John Kerry meeting the UN chief Ban Ki-moon in Cairo.

Kerry said the US was concerned about Palestinian casualties, but lent his support to Israel's "appropriate and legitimate" military operation.

He said the US was sending 47 million dollars in aid to Gaza "to try to alleviate the immediate humanitarian crisis."

The two-week conflict has left nearly 600 Palestinians and 29 Israelis dead.
