5-Hour Humanitarian Cease-Fire Between Israel and Hamas Ends

The agreement was reached following the deaths of four children killed, in an attack by the Israeli military, while playing on a Gaza beach on Wednesday.

“The humanitarian window is meant to allow the civilian population of the Gaza Strip to engage in resupply for their humanitarian needs,” a statement from the Israel Defense Forces read.

Four children from the same family were playing at the beach when they were attacked twice by Israeli airstrike.

Israel’s military said the airstrike was intended for a Hamas target.

Efforts to reach an extended ceasefire were underway in Egypt.

More than 200 people have died in Gaza since the attacks began last week.
