Israel, Palestinians extend Gaza truce by 24 hours

Palestinians leave their destroyed neighbourhood on a horse and cart in the northern Gaza Strip city of Beit Hanun, on August 18, 2014A new 24-hour ceasefire came into effect in the Gaza Strip Tuesday after Israeli and Palestinian negotiators agreed to extend a five-day truce, minutes before a midnight deadline, to allow for further talks on a long-term deal. News of the last-minute extension came from Cairo late Monday where Egyptian mediators have been pushing both sides to put a decisive end to weeks of bloodshed in Gaza, which has killed more than 2,000 Palestinians and 67 on the Israeli side. Israel also confirmed accepting the extension to allow talks on a longer-term deal to continue for another 24 hours. “In response to an Egyptian request, Israel agreed to extend the truce for 24 hours in order to continue the negotiations” for a more durable ceasefire, a government official said.
