Israel to Halt Attacks Every Other Day, Three Hours Per Day
The temporary cease-fire will take place in the "whole of the Gaza Strip" from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. (6 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET) today, Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman Peter Lerner told CNN.
The three-hour truce is scheduled to take place every other day.
"This is in order to enable replenishing of supplies and allow aid activities," he said.
This action was scheduled to begin after the bloodiest day of attacks by the Israeli Army on the Gaza Strip to date, according to the article.
