IDF announces 5-hour humanitarian truce

The IDF spokesperson says it has agreed to a “humanitarian window” on Thursday, July 17 between 10 am. and 3 p.m..

“The IDF will cease operational activity within the Gaza Strip and hold its fire,” the spokesperson’s office says in a statement. “This humanitarian window is meant to allow the civilian population of the Gaza Strip to engage in resupply for their humanitarian needs.”

“Should the humanitarian window be exploited by Hamas or other terror organizations for the purpose of launching attacks against Israeli civilian or military targets the IDF will respond firmly and decisively.”
