The five-day ceasefire could come after a month and a half of a war that has left more than 14,500 dead, most of them minors and women.

Ismail Haniyeh, head of the political wing of the Islamist group Hamashas stated that he is close to achieving a truce agreement with Israel, after a month and a half of a war that has left more than 14,500 deadthe vast majority of them in the Gaza Strip.

"The movement delivered its response to the brothers in Qatar and the mediators, and we are close to reaching a truce agreement," said Haniyeh, who has been exiled in Qatar for years, in a brief statement published on Telegram.

Israel declared the war to Hamas on October 7 following an attack by the Islamist group that included rocket fire and the infiltration of some 3,000 militants who killed about 1,200 people and kidnapped more than 240 in Israeli villages near the Gaza Strip.

Israel's air, naval and ground forces have since counterattacked on the Palestinian enclave, where more than 13,300 people have died, most of them minors and womenas well as more than 6,500 missing people who could be under the rubble, so the death toll could be even higher.

In this context, the international pressure for a ceasefire has been growing more intense, and last week the UN Security Council approved a resolution to establish war pauses and humanitarian corridors in Gaza after four failed attempts since the conflict began.
