Israel-Hamas agree to extend Gaza truce for seventh day


Israel and Hamas have agreed to extend the pause in hostilities to facilitate a hostages-prisoners swap in Gaza for a seventh day.

Israel's military said a truce with Hamas will continue "in light of the mediators' efforts to continue the process of releasing hostages, and subject to the terms of the agreement".

In a statement, the official spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Qatar said the truce has been extended for November 30 "under the existing conditions, which are a cessation of all military activities and the entry of humanitarian aid to Gaza, within the framework of the joint mediation of Qatar with Egypt and the United States".

He "confirmed that efforts were ongoing with the aim of reaching a permanent ceasefire in the Gaza Strip".
