Israel accepts Egypt proposal to end Gaza air strikes

Israel's security cabinet has accepted a ceasefire for the Gaza Strip which has been put forward by Egypt.

Hamas, which controls Gaza, has not formally responded. But its armed wing has rejected the plan as a "surrender".

The proposal urges a ceasefire starting imminently, followed by a series of meetings in Cairo with high-level delegations from both sides.
