Egyptian and Palestinian delegates have reportedly reached a new agreement on a draft cease-fire proposal that will submitted to Israel on Saturday, a Palestinian official told AFP.

According to the official speaking on condition of anonymity, the deal would see the Palestinian Authority and the government in Cairo render control of the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. 

Under the reported terms, Hamas would in effect enact a unity deal signed in April with the PA, entrusting the group's demands for a port in Gaza to the Ramallah-based government for negotiations at a later point with Israel.
