GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A cease-fire between Israel and Hamas that ended a month of fighting is holding for a second day, ahead on negotiations in Cairo on a long-term truce and a broader deal for the war-ravaged Gaza Strip.
Delegations from both sides were in Cairo on Wednesday where Egyptian mediators planned to shuttle between them to try to work out a deal.
Some details have emerged about Hamas' negotiating points, including an internationally funded reconstruction of Gaza, which would be overseen by a Palestinian unity government led by President Mahmoud Abbas.
The cease-fire is the longest lull in a war that has killed nearly 1,900 Palestinians. Israel has lost 67 people, including three civilians.

In Gaza, people took advantage of the calm to return to their devastated homes and inspect the damage.
