Israel’s cabinet voted late Thursday to accept an Egyptian-brokered cease-fire
- Hamas leader Osama Hamdan confirmed the cease-fire and said it would begin at 2 a.m. local time, which Israeli officials said was the start time to which they agreed.
- The intense barrages from both sides, over nearly two weeks, were the worst since the most recent of three wars between Israel and Hamas in 2014. The clashes over the past 11 days claimed the lives of more than 200 people in total, with most in Gaza.
