Egypt official: Israel, Gaza terror groups agree truce

Israel and terrorist factions in the Gaza Strip have agreed to an Egyptian-mediated truce to end four days of cross-border violence, a senior Egyptian security official told Reuters on Tuesday.
The official said both sides "agreed to end the current operations" including an unusual undertaking by Israel to "stop assassinations" in a deal expected to take effect at 1 a.m. local time.
There was no immediate comment by Israel or the Palestinian factions regarding the deal.
