The Israeli cabinet is going to meet on Tuesday morning to discuss a ceasefire proposal tabled by Egypt, according to an Israeli official.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will convene his decision-making security cabinet on Tuesday to talk about ending the week long conflict with Hamas in Gaza, they said.
It's been an emotionally exhausting day in Israel and Gaza as hopes for peace were raised then dashed then raised then dashed again.
In the court of international opinion, this is how Israel wins a battle and still manages to lose the war.
Until the Israelis and the Palestinians find a way of resolving the underlining conflict this will not be more than a pause.
