RPT: Israel and Hamas Militants Agree to Egyptian-Brokered Ceasefire

Fox News correspondent Leland Vittert just reported on a ceasefire apparently adopted by Israel and Gaza militants. Hamas leaders have confirmed to Reuters that a ceasefire deal is about to be announced. The ceasefire would take effect at midnight local time.

He reported that in the Middle East in the hours leading to a ceasefire, there is often a heightened amount of firing on both sides as they attempt to hit their final targets.

He continued, “Our own reporting here from Fox News in Jerusalem indicates the ceasefire deal has probably, in the best way to put it, this has been penciled in, it has not yet been signed in ink. In the Middle East, anything can fall apart at any moment.”

Below is the latest from Reuters.


GAZA, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Israel and militants from the Gaza Strip have agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that will come into force at midnight local (2200 GMT), Hamas official Ayman Taha said, speaking to Reuters from Cairo.

"An agreement for calm has been reached. It will be declared at 9.00 p.m. and go into effect at midnight," Taha said.
