Israel has agreed to a five-hour ceasefire to allow humanitarian aid to Gaza.

A spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces said that it would take place between 10 am and 3 pm local time on Thursday. He added that “any attempt to take advantage of the ceasefire will be retaliated”.

Hamas has made no immediate comment.

This move by Israel comes after a request by the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry to halt its strikes in Gaza.
