We may be close to seeing a ceasefire deal in Gaza. A Hamas official tells Reuters that the ceasefire will be announced an hour from now, and go into effect at midnight local time.
However, an Israeli spokesman and another Hamas spokesperson say that the deal is not yet finalized. Integral to trying to reach temporary peace has been Egypt: the country's been central to the truce efforts between Israel and Hamas. But will the truce last?
The Israel military reports there was a direct hit on a residential building south of Tel Aviv, and two journalists for a Hamas-owned TV station were killed by Israeli airstrikes.
