Gaza strip Palestinians raced to the streets in order to stock up on food supplies and recover dead as a 12 hours humanitarian truce was agreed by Hamas and Israel.
According to health officials, workers pulled out 40 bodies from the rubble since the truce started. The Israel military pledged the fire from 1 AM EDT but they still search for tunnels that are used by the militants. Hamas dominates Gaza and declared that all Palestinian factions will abide to the small truce.
A total of over 940 people died in the conflict, most of them civilians. John Kerry maintains a diplomatic push to help end the Gaza conflicts.
Many of the resident in the area fled and there is hope that the truce will lead towards a solution to the problems that exist. Israeli tanks were seen standing as people looked for belongings and packed all that they could find including furniture, clothes and blankets.
France will host officials from Britain, US, the EU, Qatar, Turkey and Italy as diplomats try to secure a longer ceasefire. Israel did reject the international proposal for extended ceasefire according to a source in the government but John Kerry declared that there was no formal proposal presented.
