Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Says Israel and Hamas Have Agreed to a Cease-fire” – below is their description.
Israel and the Hamas group that rules Gaza agreed to end an 11-day conflict that’s devastated large swaths of the Palestinian enclave and sowed chaos in Israel.
Israel’s security cabinet unanimously voted to approve an Egyptian proposal for an unconditional, bilateral truce, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said in a text message. The cease-fire is to take effect at 2 a.m. on Friday, Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said.
A total of 232 Palestinians and 12 people in Israel have been killed in the violence. Efforts to end the hostilities intensified after the U.S. raised pressure on Israel on Wednesday to dial back its onslaught.
