JERUSALEM, July 20 (Reuters) - Israel agreed to a two-hour humanitarian truce on Sunday in a neighborhood in the Gaza Strip hit hard by Israeli shelling, an Israeli military spokesman said.
The ceasefire, requested by the International Committee of the Red Cross, will last from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm (1030-1230 GMT) in the Shejaia district, where health officials said at least 50 Palestinians were killed by Israeli fire.
Hamas said earlier that it would abide by a temporary truce. (Writing by Ari Rabinovitch, Editing by Jeffrey Heller)
