Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi says he expects Israeli air strikes in Gaza to end later on Tuesday.
Egypt has been trying to broker a truce in the conflict. The statement came after Israel put plans for a ground operation on hold to give ceasefire talks in Cairo a chance.
The conflict began last Wednesday when Israel killed a Hamas military leader, saying it wanted to end rocket attacks.
More than 110 Palestinians and three Israelis have been killed.
