By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

A temporary ceasefire in Gaza is expected, following news that Hamas and the Islamic Jihad have informed Qatar and Egypt of their positions on the matter.

The ceasefire would arrive at a critical time for Palestinians in Gaza, as the World Food Program announced that 2.2 million of all people in the Strip – nearly the total population of the small region – are in urgent need of food assistance.

Meanwhile, fierce fighting between Palestinian Resistance and invading Israelis continued in several areas in northern Gaza.

Israeli massacres targeting civilians also continued unabated.

We confirm agreement on a 4-day humanitarian truce through Qatari and Egyptian efforts.

50 hostages, women and children, will be released in exchange for the release of 150 women and children of our people in the prisons of the occupation.

Under the agreement, hundreds of trucks of humanitarian, relief and medical aid and fuel will be brought to all areas of the Gaza Strip.

Under the agreement, the movement of Israeli military vehicles in the Gaza Strip will also be suspended.

According to the agreement, a ceasefire will be established by both sides and the cessation of all military actions of the occupation army in all areas of the Gaza Strip.

Under the agreement, the free movement of people from north to south along Salah al-Din Street is guaranteed.

During the period of the truce, the occupation carries out no attack or arrest of anyone in all areas of the Gaza Strip.

Under the agreement, air traffic in the south will be suspended for the duration of the truce days and in the north for 6 hours a day.

As we announce the conclusion of the truce agreement, we affirm that our hands will remain on the trigger and our battalions will remain on the lookout to defend our people.
