Israel to Decide Today on Egyptian Ceasefire Proposal

Israel has said that it will make is decision today on whether or not to accept the Egyptian proposal for an extended ceasefire following last night's (Monday) announcement by Hamas and the other Palestinians factions' announcement that they would accept the outline that Egypt submitted.

In Jerusalem, Israeli officials sat long into the night discussing the proposal, though as yet no decision has officially been arrived at. The proposal would include the full removal of the Gaza blockade, the extension of the Gaza fishing zone which was limited for security reasons, as well as opening the Gaza crossings to the passage of people and funds.
