Israel-Hamas Truce To Begin Thursday: Report


www.huffingtonpost.com

CAIRO, Egypt AP) _ Israel and the radical Islamic group Hamas have agreed on a truce to begin Thursday, Egypt's state-owned news agency said Tuesday.

Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said the group is committed to the truce deal. Israeli officials declined to confirm a deal, but said Israel's negotiator in the truce talks was rushing to Cairo and that they were "cautiously optimistic."

Egypt's MENA agency cited an unnamed high-level Egyptian official as saying that both sides "have agreed on the first phase" of an Egyptian package to end the violence in the Gaza Strip.

The first phase is a "mutual and simultaneous calm" that will start at 6 a.m. Thursday, MENA said.
