Message Subject "Pillar of Defense (Cloud)" - Israel & Hamas Agree to Gaza Cease Fire

THE Middle East appeared to have pulled back from the brink last night after Egyptian media reported Israel and Hamas had agreed a ceasefire.

The apparent breakthrough came as senior Israeli ministers were quoted as saying that Israel had decided to hold off from launching a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip to give Egyptian-led truce efforts a chance to work.

"A decision was taken that for the time being there is a temporary hold on the ground incursion to give diplomacy a chance to succeed," a senior official told Agence France-Presse.

"They discussed both the state of the diplomacy and the military operation."

Al-Arabiya news agency reported that a ceasefire would be implemented in two stages.

The first stage would be the end of bombing and rocketing: Israel would agree to end its aerial and naval bombing of Gaza and Hamas would agree to end rocket fire into Israel.
