Official: Palestinians, Israel Agree to Truce Extension
Aug. 13, 2014
(Undated) -- There's an agreement in place to extend a Gaza truce. A Palestinian official says Israel and Palestinian factions have agreed to extend the ceasefire for five days. There was little evidence of a truce as Israel's military said at least five rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel Wednesday just before the previous ceasefire was to expire. In response, Israeli forces bombed several sites in Gaza. There are no reports of casualties from the Israeli air strikes.
