Israeli 155mm artillery fires towards the Gaza Strip from their position near Israel's border with the coastal Palestinian enclave on July 25, 2014The Israeli military and the militant Palestinian Hamas were set on Saturday to start a 12-hour ceasefire at 8:00 am (0500 GMT), but a longer-term truce remained elusive. Hamas said that it and other militant groups in Gaza had reached "national consensus on a humanitarian truce" and Israel later confirmed that it would observe what it called "a humanitarian window in the Gaza Strip". A statement from the Hamas-run interior ministry in Gaza warned people not to approach bombed-out buildings and militant bases for fear of "explosive objects". Earlier, US Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking from Cairo, said that efforts to broker a longer halt to the fighting had so far yet to bear fruit.
