Palestinian and Egyptian officials said a deal had been reached – but Israel has yet to comment.

Five rockets have meanwhile been fired from Gaza, Israel’s military says.

No casualties have been reported in Israel. Hamas militants have denied they fired the rockets.

The extension to the truce was agreed less than an hour before the existing three-day truce expired at midnight local time.

“We have agreed to give more time for the negotiations,” the head of the Palestinian delegation in Cairo, Azzam al-Ahmed, told AFP news agency.
