Gaza ceasefire extended - officials Israel, Palestinians 'extend Gaza truce by five days'
(35 minutes later)
Agreement reached on extension to three-day Gaza ceasefire, Hamas and Egyptian officials say - no word from Israel Israeli and Palestinian negotiators have reportedly agreed to extend a ceasefire in Gaza by five days, just as a three-day truce was about to expire.
More to follow. Officials from both sides have been holding indirect talks in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, aimed at finding a solution to the Gaza conflict.
Palestinian and Egyptian officials said a deal had been reached - but Israel has yet to comment.
Earlier, three rockets were fired from Gaza at Israel, Israel's military said.
The extension to the truce was agreed less than an hour before the existing three-day truce expired at midnight local time (21:00 GMT).
The BBC's correspondent in Gaza, Kevin Connolly, says the breakthrough came at a point when the talks appeared to be on the brink of breakdown.
The negotiations ahead will still be forbiddingly difficult, he adds.
