Fate of Gaza truce in balance as toll tops 2,000

0

GAZA CITY, Palestinian Territories: The Gaza death toll rose over 2,000 on Monday as the clock ticked towards a midnight deadline and negotiators in Cairo strove to hammer out a decisive end to weeks of bloodshed. As millions in and around Gaza enjoyed an eighth day of calm brought on by two back-to-back truce agreements, tensions were once again on the rise ahead of a new deadline ending a five-day ceasefire which expires at 9 p.m. (Manila time on Monday). But there was little sign of any workable consensus emerging from ongoing talks between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in Cairo.
