Latest Israel-Hamas War News: Gaza Ceasefire Talks Continue as Israel Attacks Rafah

The Israeli army said on Tuesday it had taken “operational control” of the Gazan side of the Rafah border crossing with Egypt. Wael Abu Omar, a Gaza border official, said travel and the flow of aid into the Gaza Strip “completely stopped” as a result. Hamas said it agreed to a Qatari-Egyptian ceasefire proposal and Israel said it would send meditators to negotiate, renewing hopes for a lull in the fighting even as Israel vowed to continue its military operation in Rafah.
