Tense Calm, Cease-fire Follows Another Hamas-Israel Flare-up

Tense Calm, Cease-fire Follows Another Hamas-Israel Flare-up

Friday, 10 August 2018 02:38 AM EDT

JERUSALEM (AP) — Gaza's militant Hamas rulers and Israel appear to be honoring a cease-fire that ended two days of an intense flare-up in violence amid efforts by neighboring Egypt to negotiate between the two sides.

Israel's military said on Friday that no rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel overnight and it conducted no airstrikes. Israel's government hasn't confirmed the truce.

Hamas's Al Aqsa TV reported late Thursday that an Egypt-brokered deal had taken hold "on the basis of mutual calm."

Israel and Hamas have come close to serious conflict in recent weeks after four months of violence along Gaza's border following Hamas-organized protests there.

At least 163 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including 120 protesters, since then. During that time, a Gaza sniper killed an Israeli soldier.
