Israel, Hamas reach truce

Israel and the Gaza-based Islamist group Hamas have reportedly struck a truce overnight Thursday, after tensions flared over the launch of dozens of incendiary balloons into Israel and clashes between Palestinians and the Israel Defense Forces during protests, Gaza based news outlet Sawa reported.

The agreement for calm was apparently mediated by Egypt and UN officials and set to take effect Friday morning according to the report.

Hamas agreed halt the protests along the Gaza-Israel border that often result in clashes with Israeli troops as well as hold back from launching the devices that have sparked dozens of fires across Israel.

Israeli officials have not commented on the reported agreement.
