2. All Gaza factions commit to stopping all hostilities against Israel in land, sea, air and underground and targeting Israeli civilians.
3. Border crossings will be opened (not specifying where, likely with Egypt), allowing for people and commodities to move freely.
The ceasefire will begin at 9 a.m. local time and be implemented within 12 hours, until 9 p.m.. 48 hours later Israeli and Palestinian delegations will arrive in Cairo and discuss final security arrangements.
The talks will be based on the 2012 ceasefire agreement brokered by Egypt following Operation Pillar of Defense.
