GAZA CITY - A four-year-old Palestinian girl lost 14 members of her family, including her parents and her siblings, in an Israeli air strike on Gaza.

Fulla Al-Laham is lying injured in a hospital in Gaza after almost all of her family were killed.

She was being comforted by her grandmother, Um Mohammad Al-Laham, who said an air strike hit the family home.

Fulla's parents, siblings and members of her extended family were all killed, her grandmother said.

"All of a sudden and without warning, they bombed the house on top of the residents inside," said Ms Al-Laham, who said she had witnessed many wars between Hamas militants and the Israeli army over the years.

"No one survived except my grandchild Fulla. No one was left except Fulla.

"She doesn't talk, nothing, just lays in her bed and they give medicine."

She said that another four-year-old child in the family had also been left with almost no relatives following air strikes.

In Khan Younis, in southern Gaza, Mohamed Abo Dakka said his family was still under the rubble after an Israeli air strike.

"I lost my son, my cousins, and the whole family," he said.

"I didn't lose them because they were arrested for fighting on the front lines... we were just at home, sitting at home.

"We can't find equipment to search and pull them out."

Israel said more than 1,400 people were killed when Hamas fighters launched a wave of surprise attacks near its borders with the Gaza Strip on 7 October.

Since then, 2,670 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian health authority said on Sunday evening.

More than 1,000 people are missing under the rubble in Gaza after air strikes, Palestine's defence department said.

Israel continued its air strikes on Sunday while Hamas militants fired numerous rockets into various parts of Israel.

More than one million people out of the Gaza Strip's population of 2.3 million have been forced from their homes by Israeli air strikes, the United Nations said.

Has a ceasefire been agreed?

Reuters reported on Monday that Egypt, Israel and the US have agreed to a ceasefire in southern Gaza that would coincide with the reopening of the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza, the only crossing into the territory not controlled by Israel.

However, both Hamas and the Israeli government said there had been no truce.

Israel had previously told one million people in the north of Gaza to leave their homes and move south, but Hamas urged them to stay put, saying roads out are unsafe.

The United Nations says so many people cannot be safely moved within Gaza without causing a humanitarian disaster.
