Israeli and Palestinian negotiators accepted Egypt’s call for a new 72-hour cease-fire in Gaza to commence  one minute after midnight on August 11. Egyptian-mediated negotiations toward a more durable solution for Gaza are to be resumed.
The Israeli government accepted the Egyptian cease-fire request. Azzam al-Ahmad, the lead Palestinian negotiator in Cairo, said the delegation, which includes Hamas, had notified the Egyptians “that we agreed on the cease-fire based on the Egyptian statement.”

6:10 AM ET August 10, 2014. Palestinian negotiators will remain in Cairo for a meeting with the Arab League on August 11 to discuss the Gaza crisis. However, the Palestinian delegation had said it was likely to abandon the talks today unless Israel returns to the table without pre-conditions. Prime Minister Netanyahu had said today that Israel would stay away from the Egyptian-mediated talks with Hamas as long as Palestinian rocket and mortar attacks from the Gaza Strip continued. "Israel will not negotiate under fire," Netanyahu said at the weekly meeting of his cabinet. Foreign Minister Liberman said that the time had come for Israel to topple Hamas rule in the Gaza Strip. "The only thing left to do is defeat Hamas, clean up the territory and get out as quickly as possible." Egypt had reportedly proposed a compromised offer to the Palestinians and Israel that includes a cease-fire in Gaza and the opening of border crossings between the enclave and the Jewish state, according to pan-Arab daily al-Hayat. The discussion will be scheduled regarding the controversial demands of the parties only after tensions are eased. -agencies
