Israel kept up the pressure on Hamas in Gaza on Saturday, carrying out multiple air strikes that killed seven Palestinians, three of them children, as Egypt prepared to convene new truce talks. Since a previous round of frantic Egyptian diplomacy collapsed, shattering nine days of calm, 84 Palestinians and a four-year-old Israeli boy have died as a result of the violence.
