Israel offers Gaza truce extension but Hamas rejection reported
Israel has offered to extend a three-day ceasefire in Gaza which began on Tuesday after nearly a month of conflict.
However, unconfirmed reports on social media suggest the militant Hamas movement, which controls Gaza, has not agreed to the extension.
Egypt has been mediating in indirect Israeli-Palestinian talks.
More than 1,800 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and 67 Israelis, mainly soldiers, have died in the conflict.
A Thai national in Israel was also killed.
