An Israeli diplomatic official said on Tuesday that Israel hoped that the cease-fire would be extended, but that Hamas was the “wild card” and it was not clear how they would react.

Diplomatic officials said that all options were on the table, and that three scenarios were being taken into consideration: that a longer-term cease fire is agreed upon by midnight; that another 72-hour cease-fire is declared during which negotiations continue on a longer deal; that the cease-fire ends and Hamas again begins rocketing Israeli towns.
