With no rockets fired for hours, optimism said growing that ceasefire can be reached

It has been hours since the latest rockets were fired by terrorists in the Gaza Strip, despite Israeli airstrikes in the Strip, amid growing speculation that a ceasefire could be in the works, three days after Jerusalem launched the major operation.

The BBC reports that the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad delegation to the indirect talks in Cairo has received a ceasefire proposal from egypt’s intelligence and has asked for time to discuss it with the terror group’s leadership.
