A cease-fire agreement was reached in Gaza bringing the week-long battle to an end, Egypt’s foreign minister announced.  The truce will take effect at 2 p.m.

Mohammed Kamel Amr made the announcement at a press conference with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Cairo.  Clinton had traveled to the Middle East yesterday to with all involved parties.

More than 100 people have died with hundreds more injured during the conflict between Hamas and Israel.

Several city politicians have come out in support of Israel since the conflict flared up again recently.

“This cowardly attack on innocent civilians makes abundantly clear who the true aggressors in this conflict are,” Public Advocate Bill de Blasio said in a statement today. “The return of terrorist bombings to the streets of Tel Aviv is an assault on our values and our own security interests.”

Area elected officials also gathered with the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York and the Consulate General of Israel in Manhattan yesterday in a show of support.
