Back dropped by the damaged minaret of the Al-Azba mosque, Palestinians sit under a tent they erected by the rubble of houses, destroyed by Israeli strikes during the war, in the town of Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, on Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014.

CAIRO — A temporary Israel-Hamas truce was holding for a second day Tuesday as marathon, indirect negotiations on a lasting cease-fire and a long-term solution for the battered Gaza Strip were set to resume in Cairo.

A similar, three-day truce collapsed Friday when militants resumed rocket fire on Israel after the sides were unable to make any headway in the Egypt-hosted talks. Hamas is seeking an end to an Israeli-Egyptian border blockade of the Gaza Strip while Israel wants Hamas to disarm.

The Israeli military said no incidents between the two sides were registered overnight — neither Hamas rocket fire at Israel nor Israeli strikes in Gaza.

It said that early Tuesday that a small Gazan fishing boat had violated an Israeli-imposed prohibition on going out to sea, but had turned around after an Israeli naval vessel fired several warning shots in its direction.

The month-long Gaza war has killed more than 1,900 Palestinians, the majority of them civilians, Palestinian and U.N. officials say. In Israel, 67 people have been killed, all but three of them soldiers, officials there say.

Give it 30 minutes and Hamas will violate it.
