Gaza City, Palestinian Territories (ANTARA News) - Hamas has agreed to observe a 72-hour ceasefire in the Gaza conflict to take effect Friday morning, if Israel does the same, a spokesman for the group told AFP.

"Hamas and all the (Palestinian) resistance movements have accepted a 72-hour humanitarian ceasefire from 8:00 am Friday (0500 GMT) which will be respected by all these movements if the other party (Israel) also observes the ceasefire," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said.
