While reports are conflicting, at least 500 (possibly as many as 570) Palestinians and 27 Israelis have been killed  since Israel began an offensive in the Gaza Strip on July 8 intending to quash Hamas rocket fire and destroy Hamas tunnels linking the Strip to Israeli territory. On Monday, Palestinian deaths topped 100 for the second day in a row. With the offensive approaching the two-week mark, the U.N. Security Council has called for an immediate ceasefire, and   U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Cairo  to push for a cessation of hostilities.
