Israel has accepted an Egyptian proposal for a new 72-hour cease-fire with Gaza militants.
 
The move clears the way for the resumption of indirect talks on a long-term cease-fire arrangement in Hamas-ruled Gaza after a month of heavy fighting that has taken nearly 2,000 lives.
 
Egypt brokered a similar truce last week. But after the three-day window, militants resumed rocket fire on Israel and new fighting erupted.
 
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry says the truce is to take effect at midnight.
