Hamas and Israel have officially announced a 12-hour ceasefire to take begin at 7am, on Saturday morning, as today’s toll of human life in the Gaza Strip topped 67. As the sun set over Gaza, at least 14 have been killed by Israeli forces, according to Ma’an.

 

The announcement came immediately after the Israeli cabinet rejected another proposal made by US Secretary of State John Kerry, which would have involved a total ceasefire followed by negotiations.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said that all militant factions of Palestinian resistance in Gaza have agreed to what is reffered to as a “humanitarian” ceasefire.

The news comes amid continued chaos and devastation in Gaza, where the death toll reportedly surpasses well over 800, with at least 5,000 injured, as Israel’s assault on the already besieged region now continues into its third week.
