Israel is weighing a unilateral ceasefire three weeks into its onslaught against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
The Hamas resistance movement has killed two Israeli soldiers in Biet Lahya, Al-Rayyis mountainous areas, Hamas Television reports.
Hamas maintains 34 Israeli soldiers have been killed and 96 others have been injured in clashes with the Palestinian fighters, but Tel Aviv officials deny the figures, putting the number of Israeli casualties at 12 killed and 85 injured.
Since the start of the US-backed Israeli offensive against Gazans on December 27, at least 1,188 Palestinians have been killed and more than 5,300 others wounded — a large number of whom are civilians.
Tel Aviv says it launched the aggression against Gaza to put an end to rocket attacks against the Israeli towns.
The deadly Israeli onslaught has so far failed to stop Palestinian rocket attacks.
