OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: An Israeli official said Thursday there is an agreement for a comprehensive Gaza cease-fire starting Friday.
In Gaza, there was no immediate confirmation from Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups that they had agreed to halt 10 days of cross-border warfare.
"There is an agreement for a cease-fire beginning tomorrow. I believe it is six in the morning," said the official, who asked not to be identified. The official said Israeli leaders approved a truce after a senior Israeli delegation held talks in Egypt.
