(Jerusalem) -- Hamas is agreeing to a temporary ceasefire with Israel proposed by the United Nations. The Israeli military says it will halt fire on the Gaza Strip for five hours Thursday. Israel says it's agreeing to the truce for humanitarian reasons. The ceasefire comes after Israeli shelling killed four Palestinian boys on a Gaza beach on Wednesday. Health officials in Gaza say more than 200 people have been killed in Israeli airstrikes.
