Three Palestinians are reported to have been killed in a series of Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip after militants there fired dozens of rockets into southern Israel.
 
Gaza health ministry officials said a pregnant woman and her daughter, aged one, were killed in the Jafarawi area.
 
A Hamas militant also died in the north, health officials said.
 
Israeli media said several civilians were hurt by rocket fire in Sderot and other towns near the Gaza border.
 
The violence came as the UN and Egypt attempted to broker a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, the militant Islamist group that dominates Gaza.
 
UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov said he was "deeply alarmed".
