Ceasefire compliance will be "monitored from the air."
Israel, Hamas, and the US have "preliminarily" agreed to a ceasefire, as reported by Sarbaz.kz citing the Washington Post.
Sources informed the publication that, under the agreement's terms, a pause in hostilities will extend for five days. This ceasefire aims to increase the delivery of humanitarian aid, including fuel, to Gaza from Egypt.
Additionally, as noted by the publication, the Palestinian group pledged to release dozens of hostages. The first groups of hostages are expected to be released in the coming days.
The ceasefire's adherence will be "monitored from the air."
On November 17, it was reported that the Israel Defense Forces had taken complete control of the western part of Gaza City and were moving to the next phase of their ground operation in the sector.
What Led to This?
The Israel Defense Forces entered the Gaza Strip in response to Hamas terrorists' attack on Israel, resulting in around 1,200 casualties and over 200 people taken as hostages. Israel's objective in Gaza is to completely eliminate Hamas. According to Gaza's health ministry estimates, over 11,000 people have died since the conflict began in the region.
Kazakhstan condemned Hamas attacks on Israeli civilians and the taking of hostages, including foreigners. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan also urged Israel to refrain from "disproportionate use of force, leading to numerous casualties among the civilian population of the Gaza Strip and the destruction of civilian infrastructure."
