  • Gaza ceasefire deal 'could last a month'

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons, reporting from Gaza, says the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Palestinian factions is a "done deal" and "all that is needed is a final statement by Israel."

    He said the Egypt brokered ceasefire "could last a month"  and will see Israel's embargo lifted, and five border posts seeing considerable changes, with the Rafah border crossing opening."

    "Fishing rights will also be going up in stages, from 3 nautical miles to 6, then 9 and 12."
