Israel agreed to a ceasefire with Hamas, the country's security cabinet decided late last week, Army Radio reported a member of the cabinet as saying on Sunday morning. Army Radio reported the cabinet member said Israel chose not to publicize the information at the time.

According to Army Radio, the security cabinet met to decide how to get Hamas to agree to a ceasefire and the prospect of a military operation in Gaza was not seriously discussed. This, despite security cabinet members and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hinting at such a possibility earlier Thursday, came after a four-hour meeting Thursday night at the tail-end of a violent two-day flareup between Israel and Hamas.
