An Egyptian-mediated ceasefire agreement has been reached between Israel and Gaza-based Palestinian Islamic Jihad that will take effect in one hour, at 10 p.m., according to multiple reports.
Speaking on Channel 12, former IDF intelligence chief Amos Yadlin warned Israelis to continue to observe Homefront Command instructions, especially in the final minutes before the ceasefire is set to take effect, noting that Islamic Jihad has retained some rocket stocks and could seek a dramatic finale to the conflict.
According to reports from Egyptian and Israeli sources, the ceasefire agreement obligates both sides not to strike at homes or at civilians.
Channel 12’s Ohad Hemo notes that if the ceasefire takes effect and holds, the next test will come on Thursday, when the annual Jerusalem Day march is set to be held, with a route that takes it through the Muslim Quarter of the Old City. In 2021, the march was interrupted by rocket fire from Gaza.
