BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Twelve Palestinians were killed on Monday as Israel launched airstrikes across the Gaza Strip, medics said.

Ahmad al-Dali and brothers Bassem and Ahmad Hijazi were killed when an airstrike targeted their car in Gaza City, medics said. Seven others were critically wounded in the strike.

Earlier, a woman and a child were killed after Israel targeted Raddad Tamboura's home in Beit Lahiya, while Muhammad Shubeir was killed in an airstrike on Gaza City.

Farhana al-Attar was killed in Beit Lahiya after a missile struck her home after midnight, medics said, while Yasin al-Biltaji and Yahya Abu Daqin were killed at dawn when Israeli warplanes fired missiles at a group of people in the Tuffah neighborhood of Gaza City.

Meanwhile, Hani Muhammad Yasin died of wounds he sustained several days ago while Nidal Badawi also died from injuries sustained Saturday in airstrikes on Rafah.

An Unidentified man was also killed in northern Gaza.

ICC action if Egypt proposal fails

The strikes came as a Palestinian official said Egypt had proposed a new ceasefire in Gaza that would open the blockaded enclave's crossings and allow in aid and reconstruction materials.

Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad al-Maliki said the Egyptian proposal was the "only solution," warning that if it fail the PLO would appeal to the UN Security Council.

"After signing the Rome Statute, Palestine will become a member in the ICC and we will officially request investigation into (Israeli) war crimes," al-Maliki said.

The ICC procedures may take years, but nothing will obstruct the investigations, he added.

The foreign minister stressed that Abbas wants to have the consent of all Palestinian factions before going to the ICC, will Mousa Abu Marzouq having already signed off for Hamas.

The president is still waiting for other factions to agree to the proposal, al-Maliki said.
