  • Israel and Hamas reportedly reached an uneasy ceasefire after a fiery night of rockets and bombings left three people dead and several others injured in Israel and near Gaza. 
  • A pregnant Palestinian woman and her 18-month-old child were killed in Israeli airstrikes, while seven Israelis were wounded by Gaza rocket fire.
  • The United Nations and Egypt are trying to broker a truce to prevent another all-out conflict.


GAZA/SDEROT, Israel (Reuters) – Israel and Hamas, the Islamist group that rules the Gaza Strip, agreed on a truce on Thursday, two Palestinian officials said, an understanding that would end an escalation in fighting that has drawn mutual threats of war.

There was no formal comment from Israel, but an Israeli official who spoke on condition of anonymity denied a cease-fire had been reached. Israel rarely acknowledges reaching any such agreement with Hamas, a group it designates as a terrorist organization and with which it has fought three wars in the past decade.
