A senior Hamas official says a cease-fire has been reached with Israel to end a seven-week war that has killed more than 2,000 people.
The official said the deal calls for an "open-ended" cease-fire, and an Israeli agreement to ease its blockade of Gaza to allow relief supplies and construction materials into the war-battered territory.
Talks on deeper issues, such as Hamas' demand to reopen Gaza's airport and seaport, would begin in a month.
The official said Egypt planned an announcement later Tuesday. He spoke on condition of anonymity pending the announcement.
There was no immediate Israeli comment.
