Israel inclined to extend humanitarian truce

Israeli government ministers are inclined to extend the 12-hour humanitarian truce in Gaza, an Israeli government source tells Reuters.

“As far as Israel is concerned, there is no reason to prevent Gaza’s people from stocking up on supplies, so long as the military can continue its work against the tunnels. Our war is not against the population,” the anonymous official is quoted saying.

There is no immediate word of how long the extension would last for. Hamas has made no comment about an extension of the ceasefire, the report says.
