Gaza Conflict: 72-Hour Ceasefire; 1451 Palestinians, 59 Israelis Dead

According to Al Jazeera, “Hamas spokesman in the Gaza Strip, Sami Abu Zuhri, tells AJE that Hamas and all factions in Gaza agree to the United Nations ceasefire for 72 hours starting from 05GMT [midnight ET], as long as the other side abides to it.” Earlier: “UN and US say humanitarian truce in Gaza has been agreed by all sides as Israeli and Palestinian delegations on way to Cairo.” You can read more here.

As for the casualties:

At least 1,441 Palestinians have been killed, three-quarters of them civilians, since hostilities began on July 8, according to Gaza health officials — surpassing the at least 1,410 Palestinians killed in 2009, according to Palestinian rights groups.

Israel says 56 soldiers, two Israeli civilians and a Thai agricultural worker have died — also far more than the 13 Israeli deaths in the previous campaign.

As I’ve done in earlier posts, I’ve added the ten Palestinians that Israel killed in West Bank Gaza-solidarity protests. Gaza’s emergency services reports more than 8,100 wounded in Gaza during the conflict/assault/massacre.
