GAZA CITY: Israel has agreed to extend a ceasefire that ended a month of fighting in Gaza beyond a Friday deadline, an Israeli official said on Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity, according to The Jerusalem Post.

“Israel accepted an unconditional 72-hour cease fire, and is willing to extend an unconditional cease-fire,” the official said.

The official did not say for how much longer Israel had agreed to extend the truce, only that: “Israel has expressed its readiness to extend the truce under its current terms,” referring to the deal brokered by Egypt that took effect on Tuesday.
