Breaking: Israel Hamas Agree To Cease Fire #9

Israel and Palestinian groups agree to a 72-hour humanitarian truce in Gaza from 8:00 Jerusalem time (1:00 EDT)

An Israeli diplomatic official said Israel had given its backing to an Egyptian-brokered truce, despite shunning negotiations in Cairo.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said: "We agree to begin implementing the Egyptian initiative.

"If the ceasefire is held there will be no need for any presence of (Israeli) forces in the Gaza Strip."

The official said Israel will be watching "with a certain amount of skepticism," since previous cease-fire plans have quickly collapsed.

This will be the ninth declared cease fire since hostilities began on July 8th.

More to come
