Washington's top diplomat John Kerry  pressed efforts to end bloodshed in Gaza, reaching out to allies of Hamas as the Islamist movement's war with Israel raged into a 17th day.

Fifteen people were killed yesterday when Israeli fire hit a UN shelter in Gaza, as the Palestinian toll in the 17-day conflict rose to 800.

Yesterday, US airlines lifted a flight ban to Israel, with other international airlines expected to follow suit.

The US national aviation agency had imposed the restriction on Tuesday after a rocket hit a house very close to the runways, in a move mirrored by Europe.
