Calm Prevails in Gaza after Brief Outbreak of Fighting

CAIRO – Calm prevailed on Thursday in Gaza as a new five-day truce agreed between Israel and Palestinian militias took effect after a brief outbreak of hostilities overnight in which no casualties were reported.

The ceasefire was announced at the end of a three-day truce to allow peace talks brokered by Egypt to take place between the two sides in Cairo.

But soon after Israel said it had responded to the alleged firing of eight rockets from Gaza against its territory.

The Palestinian movement Hamas that rules Gaza denied the claim and accused Israel of a “serious and unjustified breach” of the truce.

The al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, announced in a video released Thursday it would continue manufacturing rockets with a range of more than 75 kilometers (47 miles), capable of reaching Israeli territory.

The Palestinian delegation in Cairo is set to leave Egypt on Thursday for consultations and return to resume talks within the next week, according to Palestinian sources.

Meanwhile, Israeli sources said the Cabinet will hold a session Thursday evening in order to assess the negotiations in Egypt after announcing the extension of the ceasefire for five more days.
