AFP , Saturday 26 Jul 2014

Israel's security cabinet has approved a four-hour extension of a temporary truce in Gaza, prolonging an initial 12-hour ceasefire until midnight, Israeli television reported on Saturday.

Israel's Channel 10 said the extension had been approved less than two hours before the temporary ceasefire was due to expire, and after US Secretary of State John Kerry and other international leaders called for a longer truce.
