Israel has agreed to a 12-hour humanitarian cease-fire in fighting with militants in the Gaza Strip to start at 8 a.m. (1 a.m. EDT) on Saturday, a military spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman said that during the brief truce, troops would keep searching for tunnels used by militants and that the military will "respond if terrorists choose to exploit this time to attack Israel Defense Forces personnel or fire at Israeli civilians."

"Gaza civilians who have been requested to vacate from their residents are to refrain from returning," the spokeswoman said.
