Israel, Hamas reach agreement on extended calm on Gaza border 

Published

The agreement – brokered by the United Nations and Egyptian mediators – includes the renewal of fuel supply to the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian sources.

The fisheries committee in Gaza said Israel would extend the zone allowed for fishing around the Gaza Strip.

Earlier this month, Israel halted the transfer of fuel to the Gaza Strip’s only power plant in response to the launch of arson balloons that sparked raging fires in the south of the country.

However, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined to comment on the development.
