"We call on the global community to act swiftly in order to ease tensions that have increased due to Israel's disproportionate actions in the region", the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Datuk Seri Mujahid Yusof Rawa today strongly condemned the action of the Zionist regime of Israel which launched a barrage of air and land strikes in Gaza last Friday.

Then, in a second tweet, he added: "To the Gazan people - these terrorist acts against Israel will bring you nothing but more misery".

The Palestinian leadership has already said it does not accept mediation by Trump, whose evangelical Christian base is fervently pro-Israel and whose long list of actions in support of the Jewish state includes moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

At least 23 Palestinians, including at least nine militants, were killed. Two were confirmed as Israeli, the army said.

Israel has maintained a crippling blockade of the Gaza Strip since 2007 which critics say amounts to collective punishment of the impoverished enclave's two million residents.

"We see Iranian fingerprints mostly in the Gaza Strip focused on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad but not limited to... that materializes in money weapons logistic support, military training and of course political guidance". He said Hamas could still use "different pressuring tools" to pressure Israel into easing a crippling blockade of Gaza it has enforced along with Egypt.

According to Palestinian officials, the ceasefire came into effect at 4.30am local time (01:30 GMT), after Israel and Hamas, the movement that governs the Strip, agreed to taper the fighting that reached a peak on Sunday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had warned Sunday that "massive attacks against terrorist elements" would continue due to the rocket attacks coming from Gaza.

In what it said was a separate, targeted attack, Israel's military killed Hamed Ahmed Al-Khodary, a Hamas commander. "We killed dozens of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, and knocked down terrorist buildings", Netanayhu said while visiting the Israel Defense Forces Southern Command, pushing back against criticism that he has not done enough to end rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip. Israel responded by striking a Hamas military post, killing two members of Hamas' military wing.

Israel and Hamas have failed to reach a lasting deal to end regular clashes.

Netanyahu, however, has also been under criticism from right-wing coalition partners, and residents of southern Israel, for agreeing on deals with Hamas after a spate of rocket fire.

Still, Hamas' leader Ismail Haniyeh said late Sunday that the militant group was "not interested in a new war", and the start on Monday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan likely lessened motivation for battle.

The first two paragraphs in the Times article drawing criticism from Tlaib noted that eight Palestinians, including a "militant" and a pregnant mother with her daughter, were killed between Friday and Saturday by Israeli fire, the Examiner wrote.
