    Kerry: Israel Will Pause for 12 Hours

    Hours after rejecting his proposal for a week-long ceasefire, Secretary of State John Kerry said that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has agreed to pause the war against Gaza for 12 hours beginning Saturday morning. Israeli cabinet members had rejected Kerry’s proposal so it could continue discussions about how to improve the proposal in Israel’s favor.

"The whole world is watching tragic moment after tragic moment unfold and wondering when is everybody going to come to their senses," Kerry said in Cairo.
