Cease-fire holding in Gaza between Israel, Hamas
JERUSALEM, Israel - Israel says a new cease-fire with the militant Hamas group is holding in the Gaza Strip, a day after the two sides agreed to resume talks in Cairo.
The military says no rockets were fired Monday at Israel and that the military hasn't targeted any locations in the densely populated territory since the cease-fire went into effect on midnight Sunday.
The quiet allows for the resumption of talks on a long-term truce to end a month of heavy fighting in Gaza that has killed More than 1,900 Palestinians. On the Israeli side, 67 people have died, all but three of them soldiers.
Palestinian negotiators are pressing for an end to the crippling Gaza blockade imposed by Egypt and Israel, while Israel wants all Gaza militants to be disarmed.
