Israel announces 7-hour humanitarian truce in Gaza: army 

- +

Israel will hold its fire in most of the Gaza Strip for a seven-hour "humanitarian window" on Monday, the military said, four weeks into its bloody conflict with Hamas. 

Palestinians carry the body of a boy from the al-Ghul family, who died along with eight other family members after their house was hit by an Israeli air strike, on August 3, 2014 in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip

According to an army statement, the ceasefire will take place between 0700 GMT and 1400 GMT in all of the Palestinian enclave besides the area east of southern city Rafah, "where clashes were still ongoing and there was Israeli military presence."
