Cabinet meeting at 8:30pm to discuss extending humanitarian ceasefire

A cabinet meeting is scheduled to take place on 8:30pm Saturday to discuss extending the humanitarian ceasefire. Israel is leaning towards extending a 12-hour truce agreed with Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip, an Israeli government source said on Saturday.


"As far as Israel is concerned, there is no reason to prevent Gaza's people from stocking up on supplies, so long as the military can continue its work against the tunnels. Our war is not against the population," an official said, declined to be named.
