GAZA- A Palestinian official close to UN- and Egyptian-mediated negotiations told Reuters on Sunday that Israel and terrorist groups in Gaza had agreed a truce, as cross-border violence abated.

"Palestinian factions have agreed to halt rocket fire and Israel agreed to cease attacks on the Gaza Strip," the Palestinian official said.

There was no official confirmation from either side, but a senior Israeli official told Reuters: "We will judge the other side over the next few days. The extent to which Hamas controls the other militant groups will affect the way we choose to act."

The official spoke shortly before a Kassam exploded near Ashkelon Sunday night.
