Israel has said it’s prepared to launch a ground offensive in its conflict with Hamas in the Gaza Strip. But that offensive is on hold as talks toward a truce continue. Here’s the U.K.’s Channel 4.

“It’s thought Israel set the summit to a Thursday deadline. More than 110 Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed so far. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is at the talks and has called for an immediate ceasefire.”

The U.S. is accompanying the U.N. at those talks. Al Jazeera reports.

“Ban and the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will both head to Israel in a few hours to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.”

Without an official ceasefire agreement, people in the Gaza Strip aren’t taking chances. The BBC explains.

“They know from the 2008-2009 Israeli invasion that that is one of the areas where Israeli troops will move in. So they’re moving here to Gaza City …”  

Meanwhile, reports of an axe and knife attack at the U.S. Embassy in Israel. Details are scarce, but CNN has the latest.

“An Israeli police spokesman says a security guard at the embassy was attacked with an axe. … The attacker reportedly also had a knife on him. We know the attacker has been arrested.”
