Palestinian sources tell the leading Arabic daily Al-Hayat that there has been a “breakthrough” in international attempts to broker a ceasefire in Gaza.

The sources say that US Secretary of State John Kerry presented a proposal based on the Egyptian parameters, which would also include talks between Israeli and Palestinian delegations about issues that aren’t connected to the ceasefire effort.
