The office confirmed Netanyahu's security cabinet had unilaterally approved a ceasefire agreement brokered by Egyptian officials.

“The political leaders emphasized that the reality on the ground will be that which determines the future of the campaign,” Netanyahu's office said in a statement obtained by the Associated Press.

A Hamas official told the news outlet the cease-fire will be "mutual and simultaneous."
