U.N.- and Egyptian-mediated talks on a deal to tamp down tensions between Israel and the Gaza Strip are in "advanced stages," a senior member of Hamas said Wednesday.The Israeli army said Hamas gunfire struck an engineering vehicle along the frontier, and that in response a tank fired at a Hamas post.The Israeli army has killed at least 160 Palestinians since the protests began, while a Gaza sniper has killed an Israeli soldier.Neither Hamas nor Israel, which last fought a war in 2014, appears keen on another full-blown conflict.Israel wants to recover the bodies of two soldiers killed in the Gaza war, and wants freedom for two of its civilians who wandered into the enclave, in exchange for any far-ranging truce deal with Hamas.
