    A truce has been reached that would end the fighting between Israel and militants in Gaza, Hamas officials said Tuesday.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas — who lives in the West Bank — will announce the cease-fire at
7 p.m. local time (12 p.m. ET), according to a senior Palestinian official briefed on the matter.
But Mark Regev, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said word of a deal was “just reports.”

A senior Egyptian government official told CNN Tuesday that there was no cease-fire deal, but added, “We may have an announcement later today or tomorrow.”
