• ISRAEL MULLS EGYPT TRUCE PLAN FOR GAZA

    0

    JERUSALEM: Israel was on Tuesday weighing an Egyptian truce proposal for an immediate ceasefire after a week of the most deadly violence in and around Gaza for years. Cairo has proposed a ceasefire which would come into effect at 6 a.m. Manila time, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convening ministers from his security cabinet to consider the offer, which has won support from Washington. But the Islamist Hamas movement, whose militants have fired hundreds of rockets at Israel in the past week, ruled out any end to the fighting without a fully-fledged agreement as the death toll in Gaza from the seven-day conflict rose to 188.
