The cease-fire in and around Gaza has been extended "to give more time to reach an agreement on the issues between the two parties," senior Hamas member Izzat Risheq told CNN. There was no immediate word from Israel on the reported agreement.
Azzam al-Ahmad, the head of the Palestinian delegation involved in talks in Cairo, said the cease-fire will be extended another five days, from midnight (5 p.m. ET Wednesday).
