An open-ended ceasefire between Israel and Hamas-led Gaza militants, mediated by Egypt, took effect on Aug. 26 after a seven-week conflict. It called for an indefinite halt to hostilities, the immediate opening of Gaza's blockaded crossings with Israel and Egypt, and a widening of the territory's fishing zone in the Mediterranean.
