Israeli shells struck a UN school in Gaza killing 16, as ground troops made a significant push into the territory despite Palestinian efforts to broker a 24-hour truce.

It was the second time in a week that a UN school sheltering hundreds of homeless Palestinians had been hit, with the latest violence pushing the Gaza death toll over 1,260.

The bloodshed came as a top-level Palestinian delegation including Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders was preparing to head to Cairo to discuss a new proposal for a temporary humanitarian ceasefire.

There was no word on whether Israel would respond to the initiative, with the military striking 75 targets in Gaza overnight as ground troops made a "significant advance" inside the narrow coastal enclave.
