Israel has reportedly agreed to a framework for a temporary cease-fire accompanied by a hostage release in Gaza, following weeks of negotiations.

The Israelis have “more or less accepted” the framework, according to an anonymous senior U.S. official who spoke to The Associated PressSaturday. Talks are expected to continue Sunday in Egypt, where attention is turned to Hamas to see if they will agree to the terms.
