GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) The Israeli military has denied it launched an air strike on Gaza following the mid-morning start of an Egyptian-proposed de-escalation period.

Hamas police spokesman Eyad Bouzam had reported an Israeli strike Tuesday on an apartment building in northern Gaza.

The de-escalation period is to lead to detailed cease-fire talks between Israel and Hamas and end a week of fighting that has killed more than 190 Palestinians and exposed millions of Israelis to rocket fire from Gaza.

Hamas rejected the Egyptian plan, and Gaza militants fired at least 35 rockets at Israel by early afternoon Tuesday.

Israel accepted the truce plan, but said it would hit Gaza hard if Hamas rejects the deal.
