Pause: Israel Agrees To Extend Gaza Truce By Four Hours
A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel agreed Saturday to extend the 12-hour humanitarian truce in Gaza by four hours. The ceasefire reached Friday night would have ended at 8 p.m. local time. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Paris on Saturday meeting with European foreign ministers about extending Saturday’s lull — the longest so far since Israel-Hamas fighting erupted July 8. The Palestinian death toll has risen above 1,000 as an additional 132 bodies were retried from the rubble during Saturday’s humanitarian truce.
