Kerry says gaps remain as he presses Gaza truce

Israeli soldiers work on their Merkava tank at an army deployment area near Israel's border with the Gaza Strip, on July 24, 2014US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that more work was needed to reach a ceasefire to end the bloodshed in Gaza as he worked the phones with key players. As the deadly shelling of a UN school serving as a Palestinian shelter prompted fresh regional outrage, Kerry reached out to diplomats from a hotel in Egypt, whose government drafted a proposal to halt the 17-day Hamas-Israel conflict. I certainly have some work to do tonight,” Kerry said as he started a late-night meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, their third this week as both men shuttle the region. An unusually forceful Ban voiced anger over the shelling of the UN school in Beit Hanun, which is sheltering some of the 100,000 Palestinians displaced by the conflict.
